Johannesburg - The NPA has rejected representations by French arms deal manufacturer Thales Holdings to have the corruption charges against it dropped.
Thales Holdings is a co-accused in the corruption case involving former president Jacob Zuma.
National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Luvuyo Mfaku has confirmed that the representations made by the company have been rejected by National Director of Public Prosecutions Shaun Abrahams.
"We have rejected their representations. We firmly believe that there are prospects of a successful prosecution," said Mfaku.
If the company is unhappy with Abraham's decision, it can still approach the court for a review.
