The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has announced that it has created a dedicated task force to tackle allegations of corruption from the State Capture Report.
The NPA says it will also ensure that any prosecutors implicated in state capture will be dealt with.
In the 874-page report, the commission, chaired by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, found that state capture was established and also criticised the NPA’s failure to prosecute cases of corruption.
The report further states the NPA’s failure to respond adequately, or at all to the challenges of state capture corruption points to a fundamental failure of a sovereign state function.
However, DA’s Glynnis Breytenbach says it would be premature to start prosecution based on interim reports.
