Pretoria - The High Court in Pretoria on Friday reserved judgment in the Democratic Alliance's application to have diplomatic immunity granted to Zimbabwe's former first lady Grace Mugabe set aside.
"Thank you everybody for your time, judgment will be reserved. You will get a written judgment in due course. When? I don't know," said Judge Bashier Vally after the second day of arguments between the DA, joined by AfriForum, and on the other side the minister of international relations and cooperation.
"You will get it hopefully soon ... I don't know. I'm not committing myself to any specific time but you will get a written judgment.
The judge also extended gratitude to different parties who had joined the case as "amicus curiae" to assist the court.
On Thursday, Advocate Hilton Epstein, SC representing the department of international relations and cooperation argued that the South African government did not grant diplomatic immunity to Mugabe, but only recognised it after the 2017 assault charge.
