DA argues court must listen to 'spy tapes' for own interpretation
The Democratic Alliance (DA) legal team has argued that the court must review and consider the contents of the so-called spy tapes themselves.
Advocate Sean Rosenberg claims that this will help the court to establish whether their interpretation warranted the withdrawal of corruption charges against President Jacob Zuma.
EWN's Barry Bateman said that Rosenberg told the court not to rely on the inferences drawn by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA)’s Willie Hofmeyr.
