It's still unclear whether suspended African National Congress (ANC) Western Cape chairperson Marius Fransman will be prosecuted more than a year after sexual assault claims were leveled against him.
Fransman was suspended by the party for five years after he was accused of sexually harassing a woman he hired.
He is alleged to have sexually assaulted Louisa Wynand en route to the ANC's 104th birthday celebrations in Rustenburg in January 2016.
Fransman repeatedly denied the allegations and claimed they were part of a political plot against him.
Police are still investigating the incident and a decision to charge him could be made soon.
The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in the Northern Cape says the investigation into claims against Fransman is in its final stages.
The docket has gone back and forth between police and the director of public prosecutions in the province.
It's understood detectives are tying up outstanding matters in the case.
Once that has been concluded, the NPA will decided whether it will prosecute Fransman.
