Zuma will be prosecuted‚ says NPA boss
National Director of Public Prosecutions Shaun Abrahams said former president Jacob Zuma would go on trial for the 2009 string of charges that had been brought against him.
Abrahams said on Friday afternoon: “I am of the view that a trial court would be the most appropriate forum for these issues to be ventilated and to be decided upon.
“After consideration of the matter‚ I am of the view that there are reasonable prospects of a successful prosecution of Mr Zuma on the charges listed in the indictment.”
Zuma faces 18 charges‚ involving 783 incidents‚ of racketeering‚ corruption‚ money laundering and fraud.
National Prosecuting Authority in The KwaZulu-Natal will facilitate the trial.
