The Public Protector has been ordered to release the report on "state capture" by no later than 17:00 today.

This comes after President Jacob Zuma withdrew his application to interdict the release of the report.

Yesterday, Gauteng Judge President Dunstan Mlambo struck off the roll Co-operative Governance Minister Des Van Rooyen's application to interdict the report for lack of urgency.

The High Court also permitted opposition parties who had initially applied to oppose the president's application to join in the matter.

Zuma had maintained that he did not have sufficient time to respond to questions posed by former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela on his relationship with the Gupta family.
