Selective prosecutions "entirely misplaced" - Shaun Abrahams
National Director of Public Prosecutions Shaun Abrahams appeared before the Parliament’s justice committee to report on performances between April and June this year.
According to EWN's Parliamentary reporter Gaye Davis, Abrahams started off by commenting on the state of capture saying that people have been asking why is he quiet on the matter.

He says I am now eight-legged into this investigation which includes what former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor had to say and allegations by deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas that he was offered a massive bribe for a job as finance minister...Gaye Davis, EWN parliamentary reporter
Abrahams says he has a team of prosecutors and some specialised teams assisting the Hawks on state capture investigations.
Davis says Abrahams responded angrily to accusations of "selective prosecutions", saying those allegation are entirely misplaced.
