The African National Congress (ANC) on Friday said it “has noted” the decision of the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) to dismiss the appeal brought by President Jacob Zuma and the National Prosecuting Authority in relation to “the reinstatement of corruption charges against the President”.

Earlier on Friday morning SCA Justice Eric Leach upheld the High Court’s judgment that the decision to withdraw 783 charges of corruption and fraud against Zuma was irrational, saying that the decision to terminate the decision not to prosecute cannot be faulted.

Justice Leach, who only took eight minutes to hand down his ruling, said that the manner in which the case was conducted on behalf of the NPA was inexcusable.

The ANC said it “has full confidence in our judiciary and the options it offers to all aggrieved parties. Accordingly, the ANC will study the judgment and await further decisions from the affected parties before making a comprehensive statement on this matter”.
