The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) confirmed it had suspended senior prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach who led numerous high profile cases involving corruption and the arms deal.
Breytenbach was responsible for the fraud case against former Crime Intelligence boss Richard Mdluli
He was also behind the prosecution of Ponzi architect Barry Tannenbaum.
The NPA’s spokesperson Mthunzi Mhaga gave very little away about Breytenbach's suspension.
“It is an internal matter that has been dealt with through the internal disciplinary processes. We are not at liberty to discuss it in the media.”
The prosecutor had a long history in the NPA, and was highly regarded amongst her peers for being a feisty and effective prosecutor.
Her suspension raised eyebrows within the organisation with many questioning whether the move was a result of her perseverance to continue the recently aborted case against Mdluli.
