Former President Jacob Zuma returns to the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Friday to argue his application for leave to appeal a permanent stay of prosecution judgement against him.
Zuma believes the Full bench erred in their findings last month and wants the matter heard by the Supreme Court of Appeal. His co-accused, French arms dealer, Thales, has petitioned the Constitutional court directly but is also conditionally applying for leave to appeal the judgment in the Supreme Court of Appeal, in case it's turned down by the Apex court. The state is opposing the application, saying Zuma has no prospects of succeeding in a higher court.
