Zuma's lawyers to make representations in challenge against Abrahams' decision for him to stand trial
Former President Jacob Zuma's legal team is expected to make representations to the KwaZulu-Natal High Court next week as it seeks a review of National Director of Public Prosecutions Shaun Abrahams' decision that there was no reason for him not to stand trial.
The 16 charges relate to the controversial multibillion-rand arms deal.
During Zuma's previous appearance, thousands gathered to support the infamous former president.
The National Interfaith Council of South Africa, in partnership with the Commission for Religious Affairs, rallied behind Zuma.
Advocate Billy Downer, SC, a deputy director of public prosecutions in the Western Cape, is leading the State's case against Zuma.
And, Corruption Watch questions NPA's 'reluctance' to prosecute Tom Moyane
Corruption Watch said the National Prosecuting Authority told the organisation that it is reviewing its decision not to prosecute Tom Moyane.
It said this development came about after Corruption Watch asked for a certificate to be issued confirming that the NPA was not going ahead with the prosecution, as it wanted to pursue a private criminal prosecution.
The suspended South African Reserve Service commissioner is facing disciplinary charges.
Corruption Watch in a statement released yesterday questioned why there appeared to be what it called "an apparent reluctance" on the part of the NPA to prosecute Moyane.
