A senior SA Police Service official is expected to meet the NPA on Friday to discuss a summons for deputy National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) Nomgcobo Jiba, police said.

Gauteng’s head of crime detection Maj-Gen Norman Taioe, who is investigating the matter, would lead the meeting, spokesman Solomon Makgale said on Thursday.

On Tuesday, the National Prosecuting Authority said a summons for Jiba to appear in court on charges of fraud and perjury had been handed to her superior, NDPP Mxolisi Nxasana, after she could not be found.

‘It required her to appear in the Pretoria Regional Court on April 21.
Makgale on Wednesday denied they were looking for Jiba, and said no summons was issued for her arrest.

“It is worth mentioning that the issuing of the summons was not done in consultation with the SAPS’s investigating officer,” he said at the time.

The charges against Jiba relate to her failed bid to lay murder and racketeering charges against suspended KwaZulu-Natal Hawks head Maj-Gen Johan Booysen.

In February last year, Durban High Court Judge Trevor Gorven set aside the charges, saying they did not meet even minimum standards.
Nxasana was expected to brief media about the matter on Friday. SAPA
