Tangled web of Cato Manor

Insights into the scandalous machinations behind the Cato Manor accusations.

Hunters have become the hunted, with members of the former Serious and Violent Crimes Unit, of the Durban Organised Crime Unit based at Cato Manor, now demanding that racketeering charges against them be quashed – and asking that disgraced acting national director of public prosecutions, Nomgcobo Jiba, be ordered to pay all their legal costs from her own pocket. She is cited as both first and second respondent in the application launched on 8 July.

Meantime Jiba was to have gone on trial for perjury and fraud after Judge Trevor Gorven found she unlawfully ordered the prosecution of Major General Johan Booysen on murder and racketeering charges, then lied to the court by saying she had evidence to back the charges. The charges were, however, dropped by new NPA boss Shaun Abrahams, as he believed there was no prospect of it succeeding. Jiba was his deputy, who he has now placed in charge of all prosecutions in the country.
