DA MP and former prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach and her lawyer will appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court today on charges of obstruction and defeating the ends of justice, the National Prosecuting Authority said.

Spokesman Luvuyo Mfaku said the hearing related to an NPA investigation in 2012 in which Breytenbach was investigated for misconduct.

The NPA claims that she shredded relevant papers and wiped clean her laptop while she was still the head of the organisation's specialised commercial crimes unit.

"She and her lawyer, Gerhard Wagenaar, refused to hand over her laptop, which was believed to contain evidence related to the case.

"She then wiped out her official laptop and shredded vital information connected to the investigation," Mfaku said.

Breytenbach said she knew about her pending court case.

"I don't know what they are charging me for, but I am aware that I have to be in court on Monday. That is all I can say to the media," she said.
