The NPA says there is no Political agenda in Breytenbach Case

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

“We 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,”
