Zuma applies to have corruption charges set aside

Jacob Zuma's legal team is set to launch an application to set aside corruption and fraud charges against him. The bid to halt the state’s case is based on Zuma’s legal team’s claim that the former deputy president’s right to a fair trial has been unfairly prejudiced. According to the Mail & Guardian, Zuma’s lawyer Michael Hulley says they have decide on the application following this week’s court ruling setting aside the search and seizure operations against Zuma in August. Zuma is scheduled to go on trial for fraud and corruption in Durban later this year relating to his relationship with convicted fraudster Schabir Shaik.
