What business is Nomgcobo Jiba doing at NPA offices?

Justice group Freedom Under Law (FUL) is demanding answers from the National Prosecuting Authority after advocate Nomgcobo Jiba was spotted at the NPA's headquarters.

They wrote a letter to NPA boss Shaun Abrahams to explain what exactly was Jiba doing at the NPA offices after a court order made it clear that she was barred.

Judge Johan Kriegler, Former Justice of the Constitutional now with Freedom Under Law, says they initially approached the courts because Jiba was a pernicious influence within the NPA.

Jiba was placed on special leave after the High Court ruled that the decision to withdraw fraud and perjury charges against her was unlawful and irrational.

The court granted an order that says neither she or her second side-kick should set foot within the NPA.

Judge Johann Kriegler, Freedom Under Law chairperson

We thought it was necessary because she was exercising improper influence within the NPA.

Judge Johann Kriegler, Freedom Under Law chairperson

We received information that she had been there, not once but twice, and maybe more, but we only know about two.

Judge Johann Kriegler, Freedom Under Law chairperson

We instructed our lawyers to pursue this and find out from the NPA what their story is and possibly go back to the courts to get an order for contempt of court order against one one or more seniors at NPA
