NPA to meet with Breytenbach
Attorney Gerhard Wagenaar said he received correspondence from the prosecuting body.
JOHANNESBURG - Prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach's lawyer on Thursday said he received an invitation from the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to discuss her possible return to work.
On Monday, the senior prosecutor was cleared of all charges against her in her internal disciplinary hearing.
She was suspended in April 2012 for her handling of a mining rights case, but she said it was a move to stop her from prosecuting controversial policeman Richard Mdluli.
Earlier this week, the prosecuting body announced it will go to court to challenge Monday's findings.
It added the ruling would elevate insubordination, disobedience and unethical conduct in the workplace.
Breytenbach wants to return to work in the interim.
Attorney Gerhard Wagenaar said the talks will not focus on conditions for her to return to work.
"We received correspondence from the NPA in which they invited us to discuss Breytenbach's possible return to work. We have indicated that we are prepared to discuss this."
