Pretoria - Fraud and perjury charges against Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Nomgcobo Jiba were officially dropped as expected on Wednesday.

In a brief appearance, the Specialised Commercial Crimes Court in Pretoria confirmed what new prosecutions boss Shaun Abrahams announced at a media conference on Tuesday.

"I must say I do feel vindicated and I do feel relieved that as of today I am going to be focusing on what I have to do," Jiba said outside the court.

"I am a prosecutor."

She said she remained loyal to the prosecutions service and the public.

Her lawyer Zola Majavu said a media briefing would be held at 11:30 for Jiba to say more.

He said she had been vilified and called "slimy" and she had more to say but not on the charges, which involved an attempt at prosecuting top KwaZulu-Natal police officer Johan Booysen.
