LIVE | No ‘reasonable prospects of success’ – judge dismisses Zuma’s special plea appeal application

Zuma back in Pietermaritzburg court on Wednesday

Former president Jacob Zuma is back at the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Wednesday morning for judgment on his application for leave to appeal.

In his application, Zuma wants the lead prosecutor in his arms deal criminal case, advocate Billy Downer, to be removed. Zuma, who says NPA officials have violated his rights since the beginning of his arms deal criminal case in 2005, wants to be acquitted should the court find that prosecutors treated him unfairly.
