The former NPA boss has a troubled history with the organisation.
He received a golden handshake - worth around R10-million after tax - after leaving the prosecuting body.
Former president Jacob Zuma took the decision to remove Nxasana.
The Constitutional Court ruled that the decision was, in fact, invalid.
It also ruled that his successor, Shaun Abrahams, shouldn't have been appointed to the role.
Nxasana's been ordered to pay back the money.
