The National Prosecuting
Authority (NPA) is adamant that it is an independent institution and is not politically
motivated in the case against Glynnis Breytenbach.
The former prosecutor and now
Democratic Alliance Member of Parliament will be going to court in Pretoria on Monday,
charged with obstructing the ends of justice and contravening the NPA Act. The
charges relate to evidence she is accused of withholding and destroying during
an internal investigation of her when she was still working for the NPA.
The DA says the prosecuting
authority has a political agenda behind charging Breytenbach.
NPA spokesperson Luvuyo Mfaku
has refuted those claims, he said
never dabble in politics. The NPA is an independent institution that is tasked
with the responsibility of prosecuting on behalf of the state. And therefore,
the leadership of the NPA took an oath of office to uphold the constitution and
the rule of law and they are guided by the prosecution policy whenever they
take a decision whether to prosecute or not,”
