Legal analyst Mpumelelo Zikalala says Zuma's legal team and the Correctional Service said his records would not be released.

The Pietermaritzburg High Court on Tuesday heard former president Jacob Zuma's special plea in which it was argued that the entire NPA, as well as prosecutor Billy Downer, lacks the prosecutorial title to try him for corruption.

The former president's medical parole records also came into scrutiny when Correctional Services Commissioner Arthur Fraser who granted him parole was subpoenaed to deal with the records.
