ABRAHAMS REJECTS ZUMA’S REQUEST TO WITHDRAW CRIMINAL PROSECUTION

JOHANNESBURG – Prosecutions head Shaun Abrahams has not acceded to a request by former president Jacob Zuma to withdraw his criminal prosecution, pending the outcome of a separate legal battle over who will carry the costs.

Abrahams wrote to Zuma’s lawyer Michael Hulley, denying a request for a stay in proceedings at the Durban High Court, pending the finalisation of who will pay for Zuma’s legal bills.

Opposition parties have asked the court to put an end to the taxpayer footing the bill of Zuma’s personal legal costs.
