Johannesburg - French arms manufacturer Thales says it does not believe it will receive a fair trial in the corruption case involving former president Jacob Zuma.
The company says it is considering a number of legal options available to defend itself.
Thales is a co-accused in the arms deal corruption case against Zuma.
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.
Earlier this week, the National Director of Public Prosecutions Shaun Abrahams rejected Thales' representations motivating for the charges to be dropped.
