JOHANNESBURG - The curators of Julius Malema's estate will on Tuesday morning ask the North Gauteng High Court to have him declared in contempt of court.

They maintain the former ANC Youth League (ANCYL) leader has not declared all his assets despite a previous court order compelling him to do so.

Malema's lawyers said they would oppose the application by curators.

If found guilty of contempt, Malema could face a fine of R500,000 or even jail time.

Malema is also facing battles on two other fronts.

He owes the South African Revenue Service (SARS) R16 million, which has resulted in the seizure of his Limpopo farm.

He has also been charged with fraud and racketeering related to his involvement in an alleged tender in Limpopo.
