National Prosecution Authority starts donations collection plate

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) is now able to accept donor funding, according to Ronald Lamola, the Minister of Justice, EWN reports.

In light of the almost R2 billion it said it would need just to prosecute state capture cases, Lamola announced the previous year that protocols were being put in place that would govern donations to the NPA.

Lamola has informed parliament that the revised donor policy is nearing completion and will soon be presented for approval.

NPA will be the one to accept donations

Because of financial constraints, the NPA is looking for individuals with a high level of expertise to assist in the development of airtight cases of corruption.

During the current fiscal year, the authority was provided with a budget allocation of 4.9 billion rand.

Lamola responded in writing to a question posed by the Democratic Alliance and stated that the NPA is in the process of approving an amended donor funding policy.

It is being modified so that it adheres to the guidelines and regulations of the national treasury.

The deputy national director of the NPA will be the one to accept in-kind donations; however, donations of cash will have to go through the treasury in order to be processed.
