Reading Time: < 1 minute

National Director of Public Prosecutions Advocate Shamila Batohi says that they are investigating many cases emanating from the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture hearings.

Addressing the media in Pretoria, she says the institution is resourced enough to prosecute high-profile people in complex cases.

“In the past two years, the unit has been able to enrol about 18 cases. 70% being criminal cases that are still being ventilated in court. While the balance relates to forfeiture civil recovery matters. The ID has also been dealing with Eskom matters but focusing on the Kusile Power Station. It has been able to obtain and confirm a R1 billion restrain in that respect and obtained unlimited restrain orders against the assets of the Gupta family through the company Island as well as the cases of Lulana Investment which I understand is going to court tomorrow,” says Batohi.
