SCA rules against Zuma and NPA in spy tapes appeal — Newsflash

Handing down Justice Mahomed Navsa's judgment on behalf of a unanimous court, Supreme Court of Appeal Justice Eric Leach said the High Court's judgment - that the decision to drop corruption charges against Zuma was irrational - "cannot be faulted".

South Africa's Supreme Court of Appeal on Friday upheld a High Court ruling to reinstate hundreds of corruption charges filed against Jacob Zuma before he became president.

Shortly before the 2009 polls, after Zuma had won the contest for the leadership of the ruling African National Congress, Mpshe withdrew 783 charges linked to the multibillion rand 1999 arms deal.

Since then, the DA has challenged the matter in court.

It's now probably clear that the NPA should immediately reinstate charges of fraud, racketeering and money laundering and corruption against Zuma.

The National Prosecuting Authority and Mr JG Zuma are to pay such costs jointly and severally, the one paying the other to be absolved. "It is hard to understand why the present regime at the NPA considered that the decision to terminate prosecution could be defended". Zuma's counsel Kemp J Kemp SC hinted that their next move would be to approach the NPA to once again consider Zuma's representations.

Arguments about what was to happen with regard to the legal proceedings against Zuma, dominated the rest of proceedings, before judgment was reserved.
