The sexual assault charges made against media personalities DJ Fresh and Euphonik have been dismissed by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) due to the lack of evidence.
In a post on Twitter, a woman accused the two men of drugging her before sexually assaulting her a few years ago. She then opened a case.
On Monday the two DJ’s took to their social media pages to share that the charges against them have been dismissed by the NPA due to lack of evidence.
“We are pleased to state that, after considering all of the evidence collected while investigating the claim made by Ms Madikizela against us, the chief Prosecutor has dismissed the allegations on the basis that the allegations are without merit,” they said in a statement.
Speaking to News24 NPA Gauteng spokesperson Lumka Mahanjana said that “With regards to the DJ Fresh and Euphonik matter, the docket was indeed presented to the prosecutor. Upon perusal of all the available evidence in the docket, a decision not to prosecute was taken. There are no prospects of a successful prosecution on the available evidence because the evidence is insufficient”.
The DJs were released from their contracts by Primedia Broadcasting after the allegations.
South Africans have rallied behind their accuser, declaring that they believe her.
