Helen Suzman Foundation laud court disbarring Jiba and Mrwebi

Piet Olivier, legal researcher at the Helen Suzman Foundation, joins CapeTalk's John Maytham to discuss today's ruling which saw Nomgcobo Jiba and Larence Mrwebi struck off the role of advocates.

Jiba is the Deputy National Director of Public Prosecutions and Mrwebi heads up the Specialised Commercial Crime Unit.

The Helen Suzman Foundation along with Freedom under Law, were key in initiating this process that led to today's ruling.

This is another case where the courts are asserting that the people that we have in our justice system, are fit and proper to keep it safe and fight corruption.
