The hearings into the so-called spy tapes case will end in the High Court in Pretoria today with the Democratic Alliance expected to respond to the arguments.

In the Pretoria High Court on Wednesday, the National Prosecuting Authority argued, that their independence cannot be trumped for the pursuit of an individual.

The NPA was defending former head Mokotedi Mpshe's decision to drop corruption charges against President Jacob Zuma.

NPA Senior counsel Hilton Epstein said their argument was based on the principles of the separation of powers.

"This is his discretion, the National Director, unless allegations of ulterior motive didn’t apply his mind, his discretion stands and the court should not impose its own wisdom, must always be rational, but being unreasonable not irrational." He concluded.
