The four former employees were served with summonses Friday morning to appear in court on the 9th of April.

The charges relate to “Project Sunday Evenings”, a secretive intelligence exercise run by SARS.

It was set up, allegedly to spy on the National Prosecuting Authority, which was gunning for then-National Police Commissioner Jackie Selebi.
