Gerrie Nel studying Gupta leaks
The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse's (Outa) Wayne Duvenage says it seems as if the NPA is deliberately not pronouncing on its decision to prosecute.
Civil rights organisations the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) and Afriforum have indicated that if the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) decides not to prosecute President Jacob Zuma's allies implicated in state capture, they will pursue their own private prosecution.
Afriforum CEO Kallie Kriel says they will give the NPA three months to decide whether they will prosecute anyone implicated in state capture or it will give instructions to advocate Nel to seek a private prosecution.
“If there’s no progress I think that’s when we should start with putting pressure on them and then for the process to start.”
Outa's Wayne Duvenage says it seems as if the NPA is deliberately not pronouncing on its decision to prosecute.
“They know that they can drag their feet on these matters and keep those implicated out of the courts for as long as they can.”
Outa has opened several criminal charges against those implicated in the leaked emails, saying there is sufficient evidence to prosecute.
