Chairperson of the General Council of the Bar, Advocate Craig Watt-Pringle, says the Constitutional Court ruling in favour of advocates Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi who were fired from the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), is unfortunate.
The attorney for axed Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, Nomgcobo Jiba, says his client may consider reviewing the Mokgoro Enquiry report.
The application by the General Council of the Bar to have former National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) officials Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi struck of the roll of advocates has been dismissed by the Constitutional Court.
Axed top prosecutor Nomgcobo Jiba and her colleague, Lawrence Mrwebi will find out if the Constitutional Court supports the move to have them both struck off the roll of advocates.
Constitutional law expert, Phephelaphi Dube, says parliament will now decide whether to ratify President Cyril Ramaphosa’s decision to axe suspended senior NPA advocates, Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi.
