A daughter of disgraced former Hawks boss Berning Ntlemeza is to be prosecuted for intimidation and crimen injuria – two years after she was first charged.

Documents‚ which have been seen by Times Select‚ show the National Prosecuting Authority took a decision on Monday to prosecute Anele Ntlemeza.

The charges are part of a five-year battle in which ex-Limpopo police officer Captain Boitumelo Ramahlaha has attempted to have the former Hawks head answer to corruption and defeating the ends of justice charges.

Both these charges relate to Ntlemeza allegedly attempting to quash a criminal investigation into the boyfriend of his other daughter‚ Amanda Ntlemeza‚ in 2013.

Attempts to reach Anele and Berning Ntlemeza for comment failed. Ramahlaha, through his lawyer, Yolandi Hewetson, on Tuesday told Times Select that for the past five years he has been hounded by the Ntlemeza family, all for trying to do his job.
