Evidence presented at Mokgoro Inquiry suggests Mrwebi was acting in the interests of Richard Mdluli and Crime Intelligence.

Advocate Lawrence Mrwebi could not recall details about incriminating evidence presented during his cross-examination at the Mokgoro Inquiry on Friday.

Mrwebi unlawfully ordered the withdrawal of the case against former Crime Intelligence head Richard Mdluli in 2011.

The evidence in a memo and other documents, suggests that Mrwebi was acting in the interests of Mdluli and Crime Intelligence, reports EWN's Barry Bateman.
