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.

Listen to the full conversation from The Midday Report with Stephen Grootes:

Rosenberg made the point that the court must not be bound by submissions of the NPA's Willie Hofmeyr and the inferences he drew after listening to the tapes.
