Laptops stolen from DPP office hold info on Brigadier Nyameka Xaba's case

Nkosinathi Msimango, alleged mastermind behind the break-in at the office of the Chief Justice appeared in a Johannesburg court on Tuesday.

Msimango handed himself over to police in March. A number of computers were stolen in the break-in. It is reported that the stolen computers contain sensitive information on the country’s judges.

An investigation is also underway into a recent burglary at the Pretoria office of the Director of Public Prosecutions in which laptops were taken.

It was a brief appearance. The State asked for another postponed to the end of August.

Barry Bateman, EWN reporter

The police's forensic unit wants to take photographs of Msimango's face to compare it to informational data gathered from the office of the Chief Justice's surveillance system.

Bateman says Msimango wants the case wrapped up as soon as possible, proclaiming his innocence.

Meanwhile, Bateman confirms that the laptops stolen from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) contain information of the case involving Hawk’s Brigadier Nyameka Xaba.
