Simelane ducks Ginwala commission

2012-04-02 00:00

The findings of the Ginwala commission of inquiry in which national prosecutions boss Advocate Menzi Simelane is heavily criticised cannot be “elevated to factual findings”.

This was the Simelane’s argument in court papers submitted to Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng on Friday. The papers were submitted in a case in which Simelane and Justice Minister Jeff Radebe request the setting aside of the appeal court finding that President Jacob Zuma did not fulfil his constitutionally prescribed duties when he appointed Simelane as director of prosecutions — particularly in view of remarks made in the Ginwala report.
