NPA: Glynnis Breytenbach is a spy

2013-09-15 06:00

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) claims senior prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach is a spy – and it is pursuing criminal charges against her.

This is the latest shock development in the bitter battle raging for control of South Africa’s criminal justice system.

After being cleared of 15 NPA disciplinary charges earlier this year, City Press can reveal that Breytenbach is being criminally pursued based on the contents of what her attorney insists is a forged letter.

City Press understands the allegations contained in the letter have been repeated to journalists by a ­faction within the intelligence ­community loyal to suspended ­police spy boss Lieutenant General Richard Mdluli, who famously ­offered his “assistance” to President Jacob Zuma before the ANC’s Mangaung conference last year.
