Breytenbach hearing nonsense – chair

SILVERTON - The man chairing advocate Glynnis Breytenbach's disciplinary hearing has recused himself and slammed the National Prosecuting Authority for the way it is handling the matter.

The NPA asked Sandile July to recuse himself because there was a perception of bias, as his company, Werksman Attorneys, had acted for a company involved in the mining rights matter. 

Breytenbach was suspended in April for her handling of the matter between Imperial Crown Trading (ICT) and Kumba Iron Ore. However, she maintains she was targeted by NPA management because of her insistence that controversial policeman Richard Mdluli be prosecuted.

ICT's lawyer Ronnie Mendelow, the attorney who laid the complaint against Breytenbach, was leading evidence this week. 

July said the application had nothing to do with him being a director at Werksman.

“I have never had a situation where a complainant would be in charge of a hearing and telling the employer how the hearing should go," said July.

“I will not proceed. Half of it is nonsense.”
