While former president Jacob Zuma filed a 300-page affidavit, asking for a permanent stay of prosecution, the National Prosecuting Authority believes that there is a strong case against him.
In his answering affidavit, Senior Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions advocate Billy Downer SC requested the KwaZulu-Natal High Court to dismiss Zuma’s request. The reasoning behind Zuma’s request for the case to be dismissed is that he should have been charged together with Schabir Shaik, Nkobi group and Thomson.
The fact that they have been tried already and this case are linked to theirs is why he feels there is and should not be any case against him.
