'Ruling to set aside decision to withdraw charges against Jiba a blow to Zuma'

Nomgcobo Jiba will once again face charges of fraud and perjury for the unlawful authorisation of racketeering charges against former KwaZulu-Natal Hawks head Johan Booysen.

On Thursday, the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria set aside the decision by Advocate Shaun Abrahams to withdraw charges against his deputy.

Freedom Under Law's Nicole Fritz, says the court also ordered that the President Jacob Zuma establish a commission of inquiry into her fitness and that of Lawrence Mrwebi to hold office.

Fritz says this a legal blow to the president.

The president was directed in fact to establish such a commission and they were also prohibited from performing any function at the National Prosecuting Authority pending the finalisation of the appeal process.

Any court finding that holds that the President has not done what he ought to have done is absolutely a blow.

Our hope is that what happens now, is that these two cases, the Nxasana judgement and the Jiba judgement, is that they lay the foundation for an end to the chronic instabikity and offer the prospect of a revitalised NPA.
