Nkadimeng v. the National Director of Public Prosecutions and Others (T.P.D. Case No. 3554/2015), Gauteng Division of the High Court of South Africa.

The family of Nokuthula Simelane (abducted, murdered and disappeared by the Security Branch in 1983) sought a court order to compel the prosecuting authority to decide whether or not to prosecute the known suspects.[1]  In this application political interference in the TRC cases was confirmed by Vusi Pikoli, the former national director of public prosecutions and Anton Ackermann, the former head of the PCLU.[2]   The matter was settled out of court when the then NDPP, Shaun Abrahams, decided to prosecute the suspects.
