State Caption Matters
Responding to high-level corruption is the NPA's number one priority. The next few months will be a defining time for the institution and the rule of law in South Africa
We are making important progress on prosecuting high-level corruption. Four corruption cases including BOSASA, Nulane and Estina will be heard in court between July and September.
State capture is an attack from the inside - a war waged on the rule of law by the very people who were supposed to protect it. Many implicated in state capture also controlled the power of the state, including intelligence & law enforcement structures.
Impunity is no longer a given in our country. The taps of corruption and rent-seeking are being closed.
Accountability is not only about seeing people in orange overalls. It is also about hitting them where it hurts most - in their pockets.
The Investigating Directorate’s collaboration with SARS has enabled them to investigate & enrol tax fraud & corruption cases of over R85 million.
