JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Alliance (DA) is expected to file it's answering affidavits in the spy tapes saga on Monday.

The main opposition will be filing the papers in the Supreme Court of Appeal.

Last year, the High Court in Pretoria found that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA)'s decision to drop the nearly 800 charges relating to fraud and corruption against President Jacob Zuma in 2009 were irrational.

Both Zuma and the NPA filed papers last month to appeal the court's ruling.

The DA's James Selfe: "We do not believe that there is a particularly good chance that the Supreme Court of Appeal will grant him leave to appeal given the emphatic nature of the decision of the full bench of the Gauteng North High Court."
