Zuma corruption case: New submissions needed before NPA re-enrols case
The NPA says it has set a deadline for both the investigation team and for Jacob Zuma to make new submissions before end November.
The NPA says it has set a deadline for both the investigation team and for Zuma to make new submissions before end November.
The Supreme Court of Appeal recently rejected the president’s attempt to set aside a previous judgment that ruled that he should face 18 charges relating to 783 counts of fraud and racketeering.
The NPA’s Luvuyo Mfako says Hawks investigators are set to gather the 2018 people whose names are contained on the witness list linked to the corruption case against Zuma.
“The Hawks investigation officer indicated that it will take 30 days to establish the existence of witnesses.”
Fako says any more submissions by the president might relate to issues not previously considered ahead of the 2019 decision to drop the charges.
“Any representations that are made to the NPA must not have been considered previously. They must be related to new information.”
The NPA has also extended an invitation to the Democratic Alliance, who had initially brought the case to the court, to make their own representations.
