NPA confirms yet another break-in

Editor's note: The National Prosecuting Authority has since confirmed that the break-in was at the Pretoria magistrates court and not the office at the chief public prosecutor's premises, also in Pretoria.

JOHANNESBURG - Eyewitness News has received confirmation from officials at the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) that an office at the chief public prosecutor's premises in Pretoria was recently broken into.

The break-in, which happened last Thursday, comes just two weeks after computers were stolen from the office of the regional Director of Public Prosecutions.

Eyewitness News spoke to two Gauteng police spokespersons, with both saying they're not aware of the incident.

Police cannot confirm exactly what was stolen but say the breakin occurred in an office where dockets are kept.

The police’s Kay Makhubele says that no arrests have yet been made.

“Yes, I can confirm that there was a break-in on Thursday. A case of business robbery has been opened and we’re investigating to check what actually happened. But so far no one has been arrested.”

Earlier this month, the Pretoria office of the Director of Public Prosecutions was broken into and laptops were stolen.

It is understood that the intruders gained access to the building by using a fire escape and climbing through a window which leads to the ladies’ bathroom.
