Arnolds, Mr A to ask the President of the Republic
(1) Whether any persons who have been implicated in the Zondo Commission (details furnished) have been prosecuted; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) how will he address the Zondo Commission’s recommendations?
1. Decisions on whether or not to institute prosecutions, on what charges, and against whom, are within the sole purview of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA). The NPA is enjoined to act independently and impartially in executing its duties and therefore does not report on these matters to the President, neither would it be appropriate for the President to request any such report.
2. The Zondo Commission is yet to make any recommendations to me.
