By Mandisi Tyulu

The Supreme Court of Appeal will deliver judgement next year in the appeal of the National Prosecuting Authority against a finding by the Pietermaritzburg High Court that the prosecution of ANC President Jacob Zuma was unlawful.

The NPA is seeking to overturn Judge Chris Nicholson’s ruling that the NPA’s decision to charge Zuma was unlawful. Zuma’s advocate received a grilling from the five judges hearing the appeal yesterday, over Zuma’s claim that he should have been allowed to make representations before being charged. The court yesterday reserved judgment until 12 January 2009.

Deputy Judge President Louis Harms says if there is any delay, a notice will be issued.

Meanwhile Former President Thabo Mbeki is also challenging Nicholson’s finding of political interference, which he claims led the ANC to recall him from his position as president of the country.
