NPA Needs R750 Million To Respond To The Zondo Commission

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has asked Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Justice and Correctional Services for R750 million to charge the people who did wrong in the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.

The Investigating Directorate (ID) of the NPA has voluntarily announced 82 investigations and chosen 20 cases involving 65 people from Chief Justice Raymond Zondo's Report, the last part of which is expected to be released on June 15. The state's body that charges wrongdoing said it needs another R1 billion every year to deal with the growing amount of wrongdoing.

"The advisory group saw that the NPA needed more funding to respond to the Zondo Commission reports, as well as longer-term financing to strengthen its ability to respond to higher levels of wrongdoing," said Committee Chairperson Bulelani Magwanishe.

The extra money will be used to hire more officers, update the NPA, and develop more officers in the Investigating Directorate (ID), the National Prosecutions Service (including specific units), and the Office for Witness Protection. It will also be used to pay for different labor, products, equipment, and other hardware.
