JOHANNESBURG – The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) now says that an office at the Pretoria magistrates court was broken into.

Earlier this morning, officials said the break-in happened at the office of the chief public prosecutor, also in the capital.

The incident, which happened last Thursday but only came to light on Wednesday morning, comes just two weeks after computers were stolen from the office of the North Gauteng Director of Public Prosecutions.

Police have not been able to confirm exactly what was taken in the latest incident but say that the break-in occurred in an office where dockets are kept.

The police’s Kay Makhubele says that no arrests have yet been made.

“Yes, I can confirm that there was a break-in on Thursday. A case of business robbery has been opened and we’re investigating to check what actually happened. But so far no one has been arrested.”
