Court dismisses Zuma's application to have corruption charges thrown out of court

Published
Former President Jacob Zuma will stand trial on charges of corruption and money laundering.

A short while ago, the KwaZulu-Natal High court dismissed Zuma's application to have the matter thrown out of court.

Zuma and French arms company Thales had applied for a permanent stay of prosecution. But, their application was dismissed with costs.

Zuma and Thales had argued their right to a speedy trial was infringed on, due to lengthy delays in the case. Zuma also said there was a political motive behind the motive and that he had no money to fund his trial.
