The South African Police Service together with the Hawks and the NPA said the case against former crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli is not necessarily over.

Charges against Mdluli were withdrawn yesterday due to outstanding investigations.

He faced fraud charges relating to the alleged abuse of the police crime intelligence’s slush fund.

The police’s Luvuyo Mfaku said “once the further investigation has been completed, the matter would be referred to Director of Public Prosecutions with jurisdiction to ask him whether there are reasonable prospects of a successful prosecution”.

Meanwhile the Higher Education Transformation Network said its notes the second withdrawal of criminal charges against Mdluli.

The group states that from the court judgement, it is clear that the actions of Advocates Jiba, Mrwebi and DPP Advocate Mzinyathi have been vindicated and that the GCB’s conspiratory tactics of selective prosecution of black advocates are now laying in ruins and free for all to see.

HETN’s Hendrick Makaneta said we want to say that this has been long overdue, but at the same time we know that there has been battles in the NPA that has been led by Mxolisi Nxasana against those who are progressive such as advocate Nomgcobo Jiba.

“We therefore will be monitoring the developments with keen interest. We really believe that this came at a very challenging moment when we want the NPA to institute additional charges against former Director of Public Prosecutions” Makaneta added.
