FUL: Jiba entered NPA offices on Shaun Abraham's request

Rights group Freedom Under Law says it has instructed its lawyers to prepare papers seeking a contempt of court order against NPA boss Shaun Abrahams and his suspended deputy‚ Nomgcobo Jiba.

Freedom Under Law CEO, Nicole Fritz, says Abrahams and Jiba have violated a court order that was handed down in December 2017.

The order states that Jiba was to be prohibited from performing any functions at the NPA, from visiting the offices and from discussing any cases that are pending at the NPA.

Read: What business is Nomgcobo Jiba doing at NPA offices?

We have received reports that in the last few months she has been visiting the NPA offices. Late on Friday we received confirmation from the state attorney that she indeed visited and she had done so at the request and authorisation of Shaun Abrahams.

Nicole Fritz, Freedom Under Law CEO

The order was clearly and unambiguously framed and it doesn't allow for any confusion. The fact that the order has been breached means that the officials have acted in contempt of court.

Nicole Fritz, Freedom Under Law CEO

Fritz says they have asked the NPA for an undertaking by Tuesday, that there will be no further visits by Jiba. If they fail to get an undertaking and the visits are to continue, they will seek an urgent court intervention.
