The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) is confident of its case against former acting national police commissioner, Khomotso Phahlane and his co-accused.

Phahlane, his wife Brigadier Beauty Phahlane and businessman Durand Snyman appeared in the Specialized Commercial crimes court in Pretoria on Thursday. The trio were granted bail of R10 000 each.

The three is facing six charges of corruption and other alternative charges of fraud.

Gauteng NPA spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane says they’re not ruling out more arrests.

“As the NPA we have confidence in the expertise of the prosecutors who are tasked with prosecuting this matter. We believe that all three accused have the case to answer and the matter now is in the capable hands of the court.”

“We have faith that the presiding officer who will be presiding over the trial will be able to sift the truth from lies. Well the investigations are on-going and we cannot rule out the fact of more possible arrests as the NPA,” says Mjononjwane.
