Prosecutor appears for corruption
Johannesburg - A former prosecutor appeared in the Bellville Magistrate's Court, in Cape Town, on Thursday for allegedly stealing a police investigation docket.
The matter was postponed until February 15, when it would be transferred to the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crime Court.
Jonas Phoshoko, 38, appeared with co-accused Mhlangeni Mdingi, 42.
It was alleged that Mdingi, who is also involved in another unrelated case, bribed Phoshoko to make the docket disappear.
Phoshoko is out of bail of R4 000 and Mdingi on R2 000.
The case was being transferred in accordance with a directive issued by Western Cape Regional Court President Bruce Langa.
Thist stipulated that all corruption cases involving police officers or public officials, such as prosecutors, be tried in the commercial crime court.
