Pretoria - The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) is on the verge of a "new dawn", newly-appointed national director of public prosecutions Mxolisi Nxasana said on Friday.

Addressing the National Press Club in Pretoria on his vision for the NPA, Nxasana said he would ensure justice for all victims of crime.

"I appreciate the enormous task at hand and the expectations of citizens," he said.

"I would want to assure victims of crime that this is a new dawn for the NPA. I pledge my commitment to prosecute all cases without fear, favour or prejudice."

On Friday, Nxasana said the NPA was going ahead with its appeal against high court Judge John Murphy's ruling on former police crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli.

Last month, Murphy set aside a decision to withdraw fraud and corruption charges and murder and kidnapping charges against Mdluli.

President Jacob Zuma appointed Nxasana to lead the NPA at the end of August.

Nxasana, from the KwaZulu-Natal High Court, started his new role on 1 October.
