KZN suspended Hawks boss hits out at prosecutions boss
Johan Booysens has accused advocate Moipone Noko of peddling inaccuracies and untruths.
PRETORIA - In a scathing letter to the KwaZulu-Natal prosecutions boss, the province's suspended Hawks head General Johan Booysens has accused advocate Moipone Noko of peddling inaccuracies and untruths.
Eyewitness News has the seen the letter which was sent about a year ago after Noko decided against prosecuting businessman Thoshan Panday on charges of fraud and corruption.
The Mail & Guardian revealed on Friday that Panday's links to President Jacob Zuma, and serious efforts to ensure he doesn't stand trial, could be behind instability in the justice system.
Booysen says in the letter sent in November last year that Noko's decision not to prosecute Panday was permeated with inaccuracies and untruths.
He says her claim that there is a lack of evidence against Panday is false as there are more than 30 lever arch files filled with more than 200 affidavits against the suspect.
But is it Noko's decision to accept Panday's representations above those of the investigator that Booysen says raises serious questions of impropriety.
It's believed Noko is part of the conspiracy to ensure Panday is not prosecuted.
The National Prosecuting Authority says it will not respond to these allegations.
