Johannesburg - A prosecutor accused of corruption was granted R1000 bail by the Ritavi Magistrate's Court on Monday, Limpopo police said.

Prudence Caroline Mashele, 37, was arrested on Friday for allegedly demanding a bribe of R1 000 from a man convicted of robbery, Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba said in a statement.

The man allegedly gave her R500 and promised to settle the balance later.

The matter was reported to police after Mashele allegedly "pestered" him for the remaining money.

The case was postponed to May 7.
