Both parties have not yet submitted arguments on the issue of Zuma’s medical conditional release – SABC News

Former President Jacob Zuma and the Ministry of Penitentiary have not yet submitted their arguments to the Supreme Court of Appeal.

Zuma and the class have time to submit their papers by 3pm on Wednesday.

They appealed the Supreme Court’s ruling that Zuma’s parole was illegal and irrational.

In June 2021, the Constitutional Court sentenced Zuma to 15 months in prison for violating the court after violating an earlier provision requiring him to comply with a summons from the State Detention Commission to appear before him.

However, Arthur Fraser, a former commissioner in the penitentiary service, was released on parole in less than two months, despite a recommendation from the Conditional Health Advisory Board.

Meanwhile, Elias Matojane, a Supreme Court judge, said the case needed the attention of the SCA to provide certainty in the interpretation of the Law on Penitentiary Services and its regulations.

Respondents, including the Helen Suzman Foundation, must submit their conflicting documents to the SCA by July 1.
