Cape Town – The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) on Thursday said it will consider its options after two senior prosecutions officials, Nomgcobo Jiba and her colleague Lawrence Mrwebi, were struck off the roll of advocates of the General Council of the Bar of SA.
The duo were struck of the roll over their handling of the Richard Mdluli matter as ordered by Judge Frans Legodi with Judge W Hughes in agreement in the High Court in Pretoria.
"We will reflect on issues raised in the judgment with a view to determining legal avenues to explore," NPA spokesperson Luvuyo Mfaku said in a statement.
Earlier News24 reported that Legodi wrote a scathing 109-page judgment stating his disappointment with the two.
"I cannot believe that two officers of the court [advocates] who hold such high positions in the prosecuting authority will stoop so low for the protection and defence of one individual who had been implicated in serious offences," Legodi wrote.
