JOHANNESBURG - A second law firm is threatening to withdraw its services to passenger rail agency, Prasa, over unpaid fees.

Prasa owes Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr more than R9-million.

There have been reports that Werksmans Attorneys was also dumping Prasa as a client, over an unpaid R19-million bill.

Legal firm Cliffe Decker Hofmeyr says it's time to draw a line in the sand, and put all work on hold.

The firm says it was promised payment of half a million rand in December - but it was never received.

The firm has also made payments of more than R2-million on behalf of Prasa - and says it can no longer act as a banker and financier.
