South Africa’s National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has confirmed two senior prosecutors have been assigned with initiating prosecution of individuals who have not paid e-tolls, according to a report.
EyeWitness News reports advocates have been meeting with South African National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL) officials to study the cases of defaulters.
Since then, SANRAL has initiated a discount period in which outstanding e-toll accounts could be paid at a reduced rate, a move designed to promote the payment of unpaid accounts.
Now the two advocates will take on 40 test cases, with the NPA’s Nathi Mncube saying no definite numbers or deadlines have been decided upon.
“They will be taking the cases to court as and when they fell ready,” Mncube is quoted as saying.
