Since 2004, complaints have piled up against Hlophe. The list is filled with allegations you don't want a senior judge to face, writes Adriaan Basson.
Morning clouds. Cool.
There is a long list of people who stood idly by, turned a blind eye or enabled the deterioration and destruction of state institutions, Hermione Cronje, the head of the National Prosecuting Authority's (NPA) Investigative Directorate, has said.
The legal battle against state capture has begun, according to governance specialist and lawyer Judith February.
Hermione Cronje, the head of the National Prosecuting Authority's Investigative Directorate, has assured South Africans that despite widespread frustration in the lack of state capture related prosecutions, the NPA is on the verge of action.
The National Prosecuting Authority is having "particular difficulties" with requests for mutual legal assistance from India and the United Arab Emirates, National Director of Public Prosecutions Shamila Batohi has told the portfolio committee on justice and correctional services.
NDPP Shamila Batohi made a big call on Tuesday: she withdrew charges against former KZN Hawks boss General Johan Booysen. Mandy Wiener believes this decision is a clear marker on the road to recover the NPA's credibility.
National Director of Public Prosecutions Shamila Batohi has assured South Africans that the NPA will not hold back if there is evidence of wrongdoing against high-profile individuals.
National Director of Public Prosecutions Shamila Batohi says she is under no illusion that she, the National Prosecuting Authority and the new Investigative Directorate will be the target of political attacks.
Sources within both organisations say relations are poor, undermined by distrust and a fight for control of cases.

South Africans are tired of revelations and stories about capture and corruption, with no accountability and nothing going to court. Shamila Batohi, the National Director of Public Prosecutions, shares the same sentiments. But she won't risk a successful prosecution just to be popular, writes Pieter du Toit.
Head of the National Prosecuting Authority’s Investigative Directorate, Hermione Cronje says the investigation into the Estina dairy farm in the Eastern Free State will be completed by the end of the month and will then be ready for re-enrolment in court.
The pressure on National Director of Public Prosecutions Shamila Batohi is increasing daily. The public is getting restless, investors are skittish and diplomats’ questions are more pressing. And some believe Batohi is becoming increasingly frustrated, if not despondent. What is happening?
Advocate Hermione Cronje is still riding the wave of euphoria from her appointment as the new National Prosecuting Authority Investigative Directorate head
