Special Investigative Unit seeking answers from the NPA on prosecutions

By Breakfast With David Team
The Special Investigative Unit says it has presented the National Prosecuting Authority with over 460 criminal cases – but the NPA is not prosecuting.
The units Chief Governance Officer, Advocate Mahlodi Moufhe says they believe the cases are watertight and the NPA should explain why it is not moving forward. He says the SIU is made up of experts in their respective fields who ensure that cases are watertight cases before they pursue them.
The unit says the cases include an investigation into facilities management company Bosasa. In 2009, the SIU referred a report to the NPA on four tenders awarded to the company by the Department of Correctional Services worth more than R1.5 billion.
Moufhe says as a government department they exist to be accountable to the people of South Africa. He says if the NPA feels that the cases are not up to scratch it must then let the SIU know.
