Lawrence Mrwebi's memory foggy over incriminating evidence on Mdluli case
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.
