ID now permanent after Ramaphosa signs NPA amendment bill into law

JOHANNESBURG – President Cyril Ramaphosa has signed anti-corruption legislation making the Independent Directorate of National Prosecutions permanent.

Ramaphosa signed the bill into law at a public ceremony at the Union Buildings on Friday.

He simultaneously signed into law the anti-gender violence bill, which he said would help put an end to crimes committed against women and children.

Ramaphosa said this bill gives the ID powers to hire investigators who will focus on corruption-related matters.

“Permanent criminal investigators will be appointed who will have full police powers. Management will be able to reap the benefits of collaboration with the private sector and other social partners.”
