Hostile reception won't deter Breytenbach
The NPA sent her a letter on Thursday saying it agrees she should return to her position.
JOHANNESBURG - Prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach's lawyer Gerhard Wagenaar said she's not concerned that she will be returning to a hostile working environment when she goes back to work on Monday.
The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) sent her a letter on Thursday saying it agrees she should return to her position as regional head of the specialised commercial crimes unit.
Breytenbach was acquitted last week of all charges against her in her internal disciplinary hearing.
She will return to work at around 8am on Monday morning and will meet the acting head of the NPA Nomgcobo Jiba later that morning.
She's accused Jiba and the head of her unit Lawrence Mrwebi of colluding to protect controversial police intelligence boss Richard Mduli, but despite this, Wagenaar said she isn't concerned about a hostile reception.
"I don't think it's a concern on her part, she's prepared to report to her superiors and as far as she's concerned it's a relationship that is governed by mutual respect, and that's the way she will approach it."
The NPA is continuing with its application for a court review of her judgment in the disciplinary hearing.
BREYTENBACH'S BATTLE WITH THE NPA
Breytenbach met with her bosses on Wednesday afternoon after she was acquitted on all charges in her internal disciplinary hearing last week.
The head of the specialised crimes unit was suspended in April 2012 for her handling of a mining rights case.
