Democratic Alliance (DA)  has submitted supplementary heads of argument in North  Gauteng High Court on Tuesday following President Jacob Zuma’s last-minute withdrawal of the remittal relief, requesting the Public Protectors remedial actions in her ‘State of Capture report be set aside, but without any further investigation by the office.

The President argued that he wants the Public Protector’s remedial action set aside, indicating he will appoint a commission of enquiry headed up by a judge of his own choice, and with terms of reference he will determine within 30 days.

DA argued that due to this clear ulterior motive in the withdrawal of this relief, the court has an obligation to dismiss the entire application to prevent the abuse of the administration of justice.

DA Federal Council Chairperson  James Selfe said as the  President  Zuma has previously conceded that the Public Protector’s remedial action was  binding, his party  argued that the court should not only dismiss this application, but it should direct the President to implement the Public Protector’s remedial action immediately.

“The DA will continue to make sure that President Zuma gets his day in court, in this case, and others, like any other ordinary citizen. Every day that he is allowed to abscond from justice is another day that compromises the future of South Africa,” said Selfe.
