The Democratic Alliance allegedly has filed legal papers in round two of its fight to have Deputy National Director of Public Prosecutions Nomgcobo Jiba suspended.

Last month, the party failed to convince the Western Cape High Court that President Jacob Zuma acted irrationally by not suspending Jiba pending the outcome of an inquiry into her fitness to hold office.

She was criticised by several judges for her handling of the spy tapes saga, the Richard Mdluli case and her decision to prosecute embattled KwaZulu-Natal Hawks head Johan Booysen.

Shaking off its recent defeat, the DA has officially notified the court of its decision to apply for leave to appeal Judge Mokgoatji Dolamo's ruling.
