The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has promised to hand over the so-called “Zuma spy tapes” to the Democratic Alliance. This comes after the DA threatened to haul the NPA back go court over the matter.
The NPA was given just two weeks to hand over the tapes by the supreme court of appeal on the 20th March. The tapes were used to get President Jacob Zuma off corruption charges in 2009 before he ran for president, but they have never been made available.
The DA believes Zuma’s corruption charges were dropped because of his political influence. The party is still waiting for the documents and answers. After four months of procrastination, the DA says it has waited long enough and is taking action.
DA leader Helen Zille said, “We can announce today that we have instructed our lawyers to lodge the appropriate application with the North Gauteng High Court to compel the NPA to comply with the order of the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) and to produce the record of decision.”Tags: Corruption, DA, NPA, Zuma
