Prosecutor’s trial set to start in December

2017-09-27 06:01

The corruption case against suspended state prosecutor Patrick Ncango (40) is set to be heard in the Kroonstad Regional Court, starting on 6 December.

The accused was arrested by the Hawks late in 2016 in connection with alleged bribery. Following his arrest he was suspended by the National Prosecution Authority in the Free State.

Ncango allegedly solicited a bribe of R1 500 from a theft suspect; demanding the money to destroy the docket containing evidence against the suspect in order to have the case withdrawn.

Ncango was attached to the Parys Magistrate’s Court at the time.

Capt. S’fiso Nyakane, Hawks spokesperson, said the prosecutor had been arrested after the suspect had blown the whistle. Nyakane said an amount of R1 000 was found in his possession.

Ncango is out on conditional bail of R5 000. He was granted bail last year.
