A protracted legal tussle involving South African President Jacob Zuma

A protracted legal tussle involving South African President Jacob Zuma, the Democratic Alliance and the National Prosecuting Authority is underway at the Supreme Court of Appeal. The President is applying for leave to appeal a High Court ruling which found that the decision by the NPA to drop charges against him, was irrational. In April 2009, the NPA withdrew 783 fraud, racketeering and corruption charges against President Zuma based on the so-called spy tapes. The charges stem from the 1999 Arms Deal.
