Court rul­ing blow to Zuma

Finweek English Edition - - Main stories this week -

WHAT HAP­PENED DUR­BAN HIGH COURT ruled to is­sue a let­ter of re­quest to the Mau­ri­tian au­thor­i­ties ask­ing them to pro­vide the pros­e­cu­tion with doc­u­ments it needs in or­der to file new cor­rup­tion and fraud charges against ANC deputy pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma and French com­pany Thint. Zuma in­tends to ap­peal the rul­ing.

WHAT OTH­ERS SAID THE CIT­I­ZEN said: “For a man who once pro­claimed he wanted his day in court, Ja­cob Zuma is spend­ing a lot of time avoid­ing judges… per­haps he’s try­ing to keep the NPA at bay un­til the ANC elects a new pres­i­dent.” The Star printed a front-page re­port por­tray­ing the pro­posed ap­peal as yet an­other in a se­ries of de­lay­ing tac­tics.
