National Director of Public Prosecutions Shamila Batohi has expressed serious concern over the withdrawal of a case against an African National Congress (ANC) leader in the Eastern Cape.
Pumlani Mkolo and 10 others appeared in the East London Magistrates Court on Monday, where fraud charges against them were provisionally withdrawn.
They were implicated in the Nelson Mandela memorial fraud scandal. Batohi wants answers.
The National Prosecuting Authority’s Bulelwa Makeke said: “The National Director of Public Prosecutions Shamila Batohi has demanded the assurance that these matters, among other high profile matters that are outstanding on the anti-corruption task team list, should receive the necessary priority to avoid delays.”
