DA won't take any action against Breytenbach

JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Alliance (DA) says it will not take any action against MP and former prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach or suspend her after the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) announced it had laid charges of obstruction and defeating ends of justice against her.

Breytenbach is expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Monday after the NPA announced it laid charges on Friday night.

The NPA is accusing Breytenbach and her lawyer Gerhard Wagenaar of allegedly deleting information belonging to the ANC.

But the DA's James Selfe says the bid to charge her for something that happened in 2012 is political in nature at a time when the party is calling for the suspension of Nomgcobo Jiba.

“It is political in nature. At the time that she became a candidate for the DA, advocate Breytenbach made a full disclosure of all these matters, so we were not unaware of them.”
