Duduzane Zuma off the hook? Reports suggest corruption charges to be dropped
It is being reported that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) is going to provisionally withdraw corruption charges against Duduzane Zuma in the Specialised Commercial Crimes Court, when he appears tomorrow.
The charges relate to allegations that Zuma played a role in an alleged bribe offered to former Deputy Finance Minister, Mocebisi Jonas, by the Guptas.
The NPA and Hawks have refused to comment on the matter until the court proceedings are over.
Joanne Joseph spoke to Advocate Paul Hoffman.
The reports [that are out and about] are unconfirmed that the excuse of provisionally withdrawing the charges is that the Zondo Commission has not completed the hearing of the evidence of former minister Jonas and that is being used now by the National Director of Public Prosecutions [on the] pretext of withdrawing the charges of corrupt activities against Duduzane Zuma.Advocate Paul Hoffman
Let's assume it is true, I must say I have difficulty with the interest of justice being served by delaying justice in relation to the criminal charges against Dududzane Zuma.Advocate Paul Hoffman
