The Reserve Bank‚ Absa‚ the Speaker of the National Assembly and Motshekga took that remedial action on review.

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane did not oppose the application by the Reserve Bank.

De Vos said the judgment showed that the Public Protector overstepped her powers in instructing Parliament to amend the Constitution.

Car tracking report supports accused’s version of coffin assault – Times LIVE

“We cannot say really that these are the exact comparisons. You were sitting in the office and you were told about the points and you generated these points from your table‚” said Molokoane.

“Have you ever been to the scene?” he asked Maree.

“No‚ I haven’t‚” Maree replied‚ maintaining that the GPS system was accurate.

Jackson and Oosthuizen face a string of charges related to the alleged attack on Mlotshwa‚ placing him in a coffin and threatening to set it alight.

They allege they had done so after catching him with stolen copper cables. The pair testified that they wanted to deter Mlotshwa from ever stealing again and further claimed that he had threatened to burn their crops and kill their wives and children if they took him to the police.

Their version is that Mlotshwa begged to be assaulted rather than jailed.

Mlotshwa’s version‚ however‚ is that the pair attacked him when he was hitchhiking to Middelburg.

He denied being in possession of stolen goods or threatening Jackson and Oosthuizen.

He said he had told them what they wanted to hear to save his life.

After nine days‚ the trial was concluded. Oral arguments are to be delivered on August 21.

Van Breda’s counsel accused of stalling the trial – Times LIVE

However‚ chief DNA analyst from SAPS‚ Lieutenant Colonel Sharlene Otto‚ said that in all 216 samples that were tested‚ enough DNA was present to get an accurate result.

She said the Standard Operating Procedures which Combrink claimed were violated were being misrepresented.

Of the 216 samples‚ most were done with “good quality DNA which we did not struggle to get”‚ said Otto‚ and 39 had been loaded with “less than optimal” amounts of DNA. However‚ “less than optimal” did not mean they were invalid‚ and on the contrary‚ “all results obtained were reliable and valid.”

She said that the SOPs stated a recommended amount as a guideline for what was optimal‚ but did not mean anything that fell short of that would not give a result.

“Our systems are normalised that way‚” she said.

Combrink also accused the forensic analysts of obtaining a result that they wanted.

Otto put on record that she would not accept that accusation.
