PRETORIA - Prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach will go to the bargaining council on Monday in an attempt to get her job back.

This would be part of a separate parallel process at the Public Service Sector Bargaining Council.

Her disciplinary hearing at the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) will be on hold on for two weeks starting today.

She followed this route after the Labour Court turned down her application in December advising her that she should go to the bargaining council.

Should she be successful with this process, she could be reinstated immediately while her disciplinary hearing continues.

Eyewitness News has successfully applied for access to the bargaining council proceedings.

Breytenbach, who was the Gauteng head of the Specialised Commercial Crimes Unit at the NPA was suspended in April 2012, apparently for her handling of a mining rights case.

But she says it was because she wanted to prosecute former Crime Intelligence boss, Richard Mdluli.
