Former deputy director of the NPA Nomgcobo Jiba returned stand under cross-examination at the Mokgoro Commission of Inquiry on Monday.
The inquiry is looking into Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi's fitness to hold office.
EWN reporter Barry Bateman who is following the inquiry, says the lead advocate is confirming what Jiba told the inquiry last week.
They spoke about the time when Jiba was suspended in 2009 for a period of about 20 months for her involvement in the case against the then Jackie Selebi prosecutor Gerrie Nel.— Barry Bateman, Reporter, - EWN
The commission is going through documents and correspondence from 2009. We have always been told by Jiba that she entered into a consensual settlement with then acting NDPP Mokotedi Mpshe which got her back to the office and her suspension being lifted.— Barry Bateman, Reporter, - EWN
The correspondence reveals here that she addressed her representation to the then justice minister, Jeff Radebe. It was Radebe who instructed Mpshe to enter these agreements with Jiba and uplift that suspension.— Barry Bateman, Reporter, - EWN
