The State could only reopen the case if they give Kgosi further particulars he needs. With the particulars essentially the evidence that backed up the State’s claim, DPP had to withdraw the charge because without particulars of the actual claim itself, there was nothing Kgosi could argue against.

The particulars that Kgosi needed for the matter to proceed are said to be ‘classified’ according to Magosi. For now, Kgosi can take the win but the reopening of the case by the State surely rests upon Magosi removing classification markings from the ‘classified’ information in the particulars.
