De Kock questioned the two other investigating officers on who is leaking the documents. They said it was none of them.

She says they knew the documents were being leaked but couldn't pinpoint the person who leaked it.

Zondo briefly engages with De Kock and asks if she would be comfortable with extending proceedings beyond the usual time, so that she may finish her testimony. De Kock is in agreement.

Zondo calls for a short 10-minute break before continuing.

Proceedings resume at 16:10.

De Kock explains how the investigation process would unfold, and how it would affect the (draft version) charge sheet, which could change for as long as the investigation is ongoing. Once the investigation is complete, De Kock explains, the charge sheet can be completed at the same time and be submitted so that there are no delays. 

De Kock explains the colour-coding in the documents in evidence, as it relates to a working document which is yet to be finalised.

02 Apr 15:35

De Kock is still going through a raft of legal documents with Zondo, guided by September.

De Kock is asked to compare more documents with those in the Agrizzi bundle, and De Kock agrees that it is identical.

02 Apr 15:05

De Kock reads from her statement: "The integrity of the judicial process is of high importance. If documents are made available before any criminal trial is finalised, the disclosure itself may create a huge risk of prejudice to the administration of justice." 

De Kock continues: "Courts will interpret the act with fairness to all..."

De Kock is asked about her involvement in the Bosasa case. De Kock mentions that Glynnis Breytenbach was the first prosecutor assigned to the matter, and in 2010 Breytenbach and her team withdrew at the request of (former NDPP) Advocate Menzi Simelane.

De Kock then took over in February/March 2010. De Kock says she was removed as prosecutor from the matter on the 29th of February 2016. 

02 Apr 14:44

De Kock goes through her professional and academic background with Zondo, who seeks to clarify further details about her education.

The sound issues seem to have been sorted out. Proceedings resume. 

02 Apr 14:29

Commission proceedings pause briefly to deal with technical issues regarding the sound on the feed.

02 Apr 14:25

The witness, Advocate Marijke de Kock, is sworn in. Advocate Veruschka September will be leading her evidence.

02 Apr 14:22

Back from the lunch adjournment, and next up is Advocate Marijke de Kock, who was the NPA prosecutor dealing with the Bosasa case. 

Zondo first sorts through evidence bundles and files with members of the commission's legal team. 

02 Apr 13:11

Advocate Molefe briefly takes Le Roux through some invoices, some of which reflected a company named "Blake's Travel". 

Le Roux is then excused and thanked for his testimony. 

Zondo adjourns proceedings for the lunch break. Back at 14:15. 

02 Apr 13:05

Le Roux tells Zondo a lot of the equipment and security features were installed inside the home, and they did not gain access into the house. Mlambo did not take any photos here, says Le Roux.

02 Apr 13:03

Le Roux moves on to the property in Richards Bay, linked to Dudu Myeni, where he and Mlambo conducted their next site visit. Le Roux says this took place on the 20th of February.

02 Apr 12:52

Le Roux now moves on to the site visit to the property in Cala, earlier mentioned by Mlambo as being associated with Mantashe. This is where Mlambo gained access through the property gate and saw there were three houses/structures inside the property.

Le Roux says he saw Mlambo busy with his phone, possibly taking pictures or videos of the property. 

02 Apr 12:44

Le Roux currently on the property linked to Mantashe in Elliot, in the Eastern Cape, says Mlambo entered the premises and "the lady" had welcomed him after he identified himself and presented his card.

02 Apr 12:37

02 Apr 12:28

Le Roux relates the events that unfolded at the second property linked to Mti, in Greenbushes, during the site visit. Le Roux lists some of the security features and equipment at the property, which included electric fencing, LED lights and an "energiser" device.

02 Apr 12:20

02 Apr 12:17

Le Roux now relates a site visit he undertook with commission investigator Patrick Mlambo, the first of which was at a property belonging to Linda Mti.
