Johannesburg - Former president Jacob Zuma’s legal team has until Friday to submit a court application seeking a permanent stay of prosecution of his corruption charges.
If the application succeeds, Zuma could see his corruption charges reviewed and set aside.
The former president is facing 16 charges of corruption, fraud, money laundering and racketeering, linked to 783 payments that Thales allegedly made to Zuma to secure a contract for the supply of arms system combat.
Zuma is charged along with arms deal with manufacturer Thales Holdings.
He made his last appearance in court in July where his legal team sought a postponement so that legal papers challenging the charges could be heard.
