Cape Town - Deputy national director of public prosecutions Nomgcobo Jiba and her colleague, special director of public prosecutions Lawrence Mrwebi, will be struck off the roll of advocates, according to a judgment of the High Court in Pretoria on Thursday.

''I received an e-mail this morning to say so,'' said Jeremy Muller, chairperson of the General Council of the Bar.

The two NPA officials have been widely criticised, including by High Court judges and the Supreme Court of Appeal, for their roles in the controversial decisions to withdraw fraud, corruption and murder charges against suspended crime intelligence boss, Richard Mdluli, and the attempted prosecution of suspended KwaZulu-Natal Hawks head, Major-General Johan Booysen on racketeering charges.
