Jaca case postponed
The ruling on Ndumiso Jaca’s criminal case was postponed for next week Monday.
TSHWANE - The case against suspended Tshwane Metro Police deputy chief Ndumiso Jaca was postponed to next week Monday, but it appeared the magistrate was ready to make a ruling on Thursday.
Jaca’s criminal prosecution is the result of an Eyewitness News investigation in 2011 which revealed that Jaca was driving an unregistered, unlicenced car fitted with the false plates “Balty GP”.
Jaca's lawyer Andre Steenkamp continued arguing legal technical points, using case law to show why the case against his client should be withdrawn.
Steenkamp said his client was prejudiced by the state's failure to fully disclose particulars related to the case.
Magistrate Graham Travers is expected to make a ruling when the matter returns to court on Monday.
Jaca was place on paid suspension for a year.
He faces 11 charges in total, including two counts of fraud and several other contraventions of the Road Traffic Act.
