Welcome to the National Prosecuting Authority of South Africa

All citizens have a right to enjoy a life free from fear and free from crime. As a key partner in the criminal justice system, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) plays a critical role in ensuring that those who commit crime are charged and held responsible for their actions.

The core work of the NPA is prosecutions. As the lawyers for the people, our strategic focus is shaped by the need to:

  • Deliver and serve justice, without fear or favour

  • Promote a culture of public responsibility, accountability, and morality

  • Ensure public confidence in the criminal justice system

  • Contribute to growth of the South African economy
