CENTURION - The prosecutor who pursued fraud and racketeering charges against deputy prosecutions boss Nomgcobo Jiba is testifying on Thursday.

NPA prosecutor Jan Ferreira took to the stand after the proceedings were halted on Wednesday.

In 2016, Ferreira issued a legal opinion stating Jiba had a case to answer in court.

But the charges against her were withdrawn by then-National Director of Public Prosecutions Shaun Abrahams just three days later.
 
Evidence leaders at the inquiry are arguing Ferreira's testimony won't be one-sided.
  
"There isn't only one contrary view, there has been at least four different views expressed, all of which we've endeavoured to put before you so you don't get a one-sided view", said Nazreen Bawa, evidence leader.
