    Prosecutor arrested for soliciting bribe

    May 19, 2020


    A Limpopo prosecutor appeared in the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court on Monday on charges of corruption after he allegedly solicited a R6 000 bribe in exchange for making a case disappear, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said.

    The prosecutor was arrested on Friday.

    It is alleged that he demanded the money from an accused facing charges of reckless and negligent driving, said Shamila Batohi, the National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP).

    “It is extremely disturbing that one of our own, who is supposed to be at the forefront of the fight against corruption, a major scourge in our country and which is a priority focus area for the NPA, finds himself facing allegations as a perpetrator,” Batohi said in a statement.

    “The law will take its course, and the NPA will consider initiating disciplinary proceedings, in line with its regulatory framework.”
