Shaun Abrahams and Nomgcobo Jiba to be sued for contempt of court


Jiba was struck from the roll of advocates by the North Gauteng High Court in September 2016‚ after the court found that she was not fit and proper for the position. She had come under fire over her irrational decision to drop charges against crime intelligence head and self-proclaimed Jacob Zuma loyalist Richard Mdluli‚ a decision which was subsequently overturned in court.

“Jiba … flouted every rule in the fight against crime. Her failure to intervene when she was required to do so has failed the citizens of this country and in the process‚ brought the image of the legal profession and prosecuting authority into disrepute‚” Judge Frans Legodi ruled.

According to Fritz‚ the High Court then ordered in December last year that “pending the finalisation of her appeal‚ [Jiba] be prohibited from entering the offices of the National Prosecuting Authority or performing any functions relating to her position in the NPA”.

“Recently Freedom Under Law received alarming reports to the effect that this important part of the court’s order had been breached on several occasions‚” Fritz said.
