Chief Justice Sakoane Sakoane has summoned the Director of Public Prosecutions Hlalefang Motinyane, to appear before him to answer charges of perjury.
Justice Sakoane accuses DPP Motinyane of lying under oath that the lead prosecutor, Shaun Abrahams, would not be available for the treason and murder trial of politicians, Mothetjoa Metsing, Selibe Mochoboroane, former army commander, Tlali Kamoli, Captain Litekanyo Nyakane, Lance Corporals Motloheloa Ntsane and Leutsoa Motsieloa.
DPP Motinyane had filed an application for the postponement of the trial on the grounds that Adv Abrahams would not be available as he was engaged in other matters in South Africa.
Adv Abrahams appeared in court yesterday and this prompted the chief justice to accuse DPP Motinyane of lying under oath. He therefore summoned her to appear before him to answer perjury allegations.
