shots fired in assassination attempt against Afrikaner Adv, Glynnius Breytenbach, suspended head of National Prosecution Authority Gauteng.
Amongst other high-profile cases, she was also investigating fraud and corruption charges cases Jacob Zuma's son; against fired (?) ANC youth league president Julius Malema and also against SAPS crime-intelligence chief
2012-04-30 On April 30 2012, Advocate Glynnis Breytenbach, the head of the National Prosecution Authority in Gauteng, showed up at her office and found she'd been suspended.
There is a strong suspicion that Advocate Breytenbach was suspended after she had refused to drop the corruption case against SAPS crime-intelligence chief LtGen Richard Mdluli.
APRIL 11 2012: SHE CONFIRMED THAT SHE WAS TARGETTED BY TWO MEN ON BMW BIKES; SHOTS WERE FIRED TOWARDS HER: AND UNSUCCESFUL ATTEMPTS TO PUSH HER CAR OFF THE ROAD TO TRY AND GET HER TO CRASH:
Only two weeks earlier, she was targetted by two men on BMW motorbikes who tried to force her car off the road and fired two shots towards her.
This occurred on the N14 freeway near an offramp of Centurion.
She notified the special SAPS unit the Falcons of the incident - but not not submit a formal complaint to the SAPS because she would be unable to identify the helmeted gunmen.
"If this was an attempt to intimidate me, they did not succeed in their aim' she told Beeld newspaper.
SA opposition Democratic Alliance MP Dene Smits questioned the timing of Adv Breytenbach's suspension shortly after she refused to dismiss the case against the powerful local ANC-leader Mdluli.
The news media reports are rife that Mdluli would become the SAPS national police chief to replace Genl.. Bheki Cele, who's also been suspended pending an 'investigation regarding fraud.'
The acting head of the NPA adv Nomgcobo Jiba however claims that the Afrikaner advocate was suspended 'pending an investigation into alleged abuse of power in the investigation of the fraud surrounding the ownership of
Kumba/Imperial Crown Trading (ICT) mining company.
Breytenbach is livid: "My flawless reputation as a prosecuting advocate has been placed in jeopardy, but I am convinced I can prove that there is no blame from my side.'
The spokeswoman of the NPA miss Bulelwa Makeke confirmed that Advocate Breytenbach's investigation is being handled by 'other prosecutors for an internal investigation'.
Advocate Breytenbach was in charge of other investigations: amongst others the murky financial dealings of Julius Malema, who was dismissed as leader of the ANC youth league last week.
She was also investigating fraud allegations surrounding Cricket South Africa. Last year she also led the fraud investigation submitted by Kumba against ICT company into the way that Kumba managed to get ownership rights of South Africa's largest iron-ore company, Sishen.
The court had ruled last December that ICT did not have any ownership rights, and the fraud investigation concentrated on falsification of title-acts.
SA president Jacob Zuma's son Duduzane and the brothers Gupta, owners of massive steel-mill holdings worldwide, were also being investigated.
On 25 November last year the acting head of the NPA advocate Karin van Rensburg had complained about advocate Breytenbach's investigation and ordered it handed to another prosecuting advocate.
