Former President Jacob Zuma has been formally indicted and has been summoned to appear before the court next week. It is being reported that Zuma lawyer, Michael Hulley, received the indictment.
In 11 days, on the 6th of April 2018, Zuma will have to present himself at the High Court in Durban where he will face charges of fraud, corruption, money laundering and racketeering.
Briefly.co.za learned that the charges relate to 783 payments made to Zuma during the controversial arms deal. The NPA recently announced that the charges would be reinstated against Zuma. The Hawks have said that the case against Zuma has been prioritised according to ewn.co.za.
Zuma's appearance will more than likely be quick and the case might be postponed for some time. Zuma is not seen as a flight risk and has not been asked to hand in his passport or have any bail conditions put int place.
The charges that have been reinstated were dropped back in 2009.
