ConCourt to hear Bar’s application for leave to appeal in Jiba, Mrwebi saga
The Constitutional Court will hear an application by the General Council of the Bar of South Africa (GCB) for leave to appeal a Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) ruling in favour of suspended deputy prosecutions boss Nomgcobo Jiba and her colleague, Lawrence Mrwebi.
The application will be heard on March 14, 2019, the apex court has said.
“The applicant must, on or before Friday, 14 December 2018, file a paginated record in accordance with Rule 20(1) and (2) of this court’s rules, containing only those portions of the record that are strictly necessary for the determination of the issues.”
In July, the SCA overturned a ruling of the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria that Jiba and Mrwebi be struck from the roll of advocates.
