Durban - A KwaZulu-Natal prosecutor accused of raping a woman appeared in the Dundee Magistrate's Court on Friday, the NPA said.

The 38-year-old man would be back in court on 5 July, KwaZulu-Natal National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Natasha Ramkisson said.

He was denied bail and would remain in custody.

A 23-year-old woman was at the Dundee Magistrate's Court with her boyfriend when the prosecutor, who may not be named until he has pleaded, called her into his office and allegedly raped her last month.

She told her boyfriend what had happened and the matter was reported to the police.

When the prosecutor found out he was under investigation, he allegedly offered her R3 000 to withdraw the case.

Ramkisson said the man faced charges of rape, corruption, and defeating the ends of justice.

"The NPA views these offences in a serious light and takes a zero tolerance approach to illegal activities, even if the accused is one of our own," she said.

Ramkisson said the man had been suspended from duty.
