The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) says it is pursuing criminal charges against senior prosecutor Glynnis Breytenbach whom, they claim, is a spy for Israeli intelligence agency Mossad. And supporters of suspended police spy boss Richard Mdluli claim Natie Kirsh is involved.

Correspondence purportedly between expat SA billionaire Natie Kirsh and Breytenbach is the NPA’s smoking gun according to a City Press report on Sunday. The newspaper said it had seen a copy of Kirsh’s letter which, they reported, says: “I know you (Breytenbach) are concerned for my safety, but can assure you that (former Mossad head) Jacob (Perry) has it in hand … I know you two had long discussions in the Bahamas in this regard, and I hope that he was able to allay some of your concerns.”

This is the latest shock development in the bitter battle that has been raging within the NPA for two years. Breytenbach was suspended in April 2012 and faced 15 NPA disciplinary charges of which she was subsequently cleared this year.

Breytenbach has always maintained that she was side-lined because she refused to drop fraud and corruption charges against spy-boss Richard Mdluli related to the plunder of the police’s crime-intelligence slush fund. The NPA is defending a civil society action currently before the courts to ensure that case is not dropped. The NPA has been through three teams of top-flight lawyers before securing the services of Advocate Laurance Hodes last month.

Breytenbach’s attorney, Gerhard Wagenaar, said neither he nor his client had ever seen the ‘Kirsh’ letter – which he insists is forged.

Other references from the ‘Kirsh’ letter include: A proposed meeting with the brother of alleged Ponzi-scheme mastermind Barry Tannenbaum at his home in France; An offer for Breytenbach to use the “PJ” – understood to be a reference to Kirsh’s private jet; and An amount of almost R10-mil which had been placed in the “Nathaniel Trust”.

Kirsh is purported to have written: “I know you are not comfortable with the whole thing, but let’s agree not to discuss it any further. I can afford to lose the money and will not let you do so.”

Jewish Report’s attempts to contact Kirsh’s office for comment were unsuccessful.

Apologies

The SA Jewish Report wishes to apologise to Dr Yossi Unterslak, a specialist gynaecologist and reproductive medicine assistant at Vitalab, whose face and title was in an advert on the page three of our Rosh Hashanah edition this week. The advert just happened to be on the same page as “Johannesburg doctor guilty of unprofessional conduct”. I wish to place it on record that Dr Unterslak was on that page advertising his participation in Torah Talks and has absolutely nothing to do with the story about the doctor on the page.  The SA Jewish Report apologises to Dr Unterslak for any harm or unpleasantness that derived from the advert being on this page.  – Editor

Jewis Guild Orchestra

Professor Brian Buch who conducts the orchestra and is also its musical director, had his appreciative audience clamouring for more. The Jewish Guild Orchestra, although founded in 1944, has still been able to retain its fresh sound. It okays a wide range of light classical pieces and its repertoire last Sunday ranged from the operetta Gypsy Baron by Johan Strauss to the all-time Neapolitan favourite, O Sole Mio.

Expenses of the orchestra are met by its 35 members themselves; they derive no income from its activities. The orchestra was named after its original sponsor, the Johannesburg Jewish Guild which no longer exists. Its founder was the late Dr Solly Aronowsky who served as musical director for 46 years. Its current leader is Dr Bernard Caplan.

The orchestra provides support for amateur musicians, irrespective of race or religion, to develop their skills to perform in public and to enhance their appreciation of music. It also plays to audiences who would not otherwise have access to light classical music, such as residents of old aged homes, the Red Cross, Hospice and the Cancer Association.

“One of our objectives is to provide performances through which we are able to assist various charities or to promote music appreciation among scholars,” says Buch.

“We welcome new players,” says Buch. “We need female vocalists, string and brass players. We need players who are at grade 6 level.”
