Former Pres JG Zuma rescission application dismissed with cost by ConCourt

In its majority judgment on Friday, the apex court ruled that Zuma did not meet the requirements of a rescission application and sought to reopen the merits of the contempt proceedings, which had already been disposed of.

The court also awarded a costs order against Zuma.

This was the order made in the majority judgment.

There were two dissenting judgments, by Justice Leona Theron and Justice Chris Jafta.

The dissenting judgment effectively found that Zuma’s imprisonment should be dismissed, as the correct procedures were not followed and Zuma did not have the right to appeal, as would be the procedure in a criminal trial.

A majority decision by the Constitutional Court previously found that Zuma was in contempt of court after he ignored an order from the same court to appear before the State Capture Commission.

The court sentenced Zuma to 15 months’ imprisonment.
