The civil rights organisation AfriForum emphasizes that a High Court ruling found that the medical parole granted to former president Jacob Zuma was illegal. Zuma appealed the High Court ruling in the Supreme Court of Appeal and judgment was reserved in the case, which is still pending.

The Department of Correctional Services issued a media release today stating that former President Jacob Zuma has officially served his time and has been released.

“AfriForum trusts that the court will rule in our favor that Zuma’s medical parole was unlawfully granted. It is unacceptable that Zuma received preferential treatment because of his prominence as a political figure. When ANC high-ranking officials are not held accountable for their actions, it sets an extremely dangerous precedent and leads to serious abuses of power.

Slippery politicians can no longer be allowed to pull strings behind the scenes and thus bypass the legal system,” says Reiner Duvenage, Campaign Officer for strategy and content at AfriForum.
