Jaca case postponed again

A computer glitch resulted in the postponement of Ndumiso Jaca’s fraud case.

Suspended Tshwane metro top cop Ndumiso Jaca’s case will resume in court next year in February.

PRETORIA - Suspended Tshwane Metro Police deputy chief Ndumiso Jaca's case was postponed on Tuesday due to an unexpected computer glitch.

His 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 number plates.

The suspended cop faces 11 charges in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court.

Magistrate Graham Travers apologised to the prosecution and defence teams, saying that that his computer's hard drive gave in.

He postponed the matter until February, when he will deliver his written judgment.

Travers was expected to rule in Jaca's application to have the charges against him quashed.

He argued that he was prejudiced by the state's refusal to hand over information which will enable him to defend himself properly.

Prosecutors denied these claims.
