Manyi hopes ‘justice will prevail’ as DA and AfriForum challenge Zuma medical parole in court

The Jacob Zuma Foundation is confident the Pretoria high court will decide for the previous president on Tuesday, a representative for the establishment Mzwanele Manyi says. 

Former president Jacob Zuma's release on medical parole is being challenged by the <a class=DA, Helen Suzman Foundation and AfriForum at the Pretoria high Court."/>

The DA, Helen Suzman Foundation, and AfriForum are engaging against Zuma's "unlawful" clinical parole. 

Manyi said equity was not standard practice when it came to Zuma and the SA courts, saying the establishment expected an alternate and positive result on Tuesday. 

Zuma was conceded clinical parole in September, only months after he was condemned to 15 months' detainment by the Constitutional Court for scorn of court. The previous president was carrying out his punishment at the Estcourt restorative administration's place before he was moved to an external military medical clinic. 

Restorative administrations manager Arthur Fraser confessed to approving Zuma's delivery in spite of the clinical parole warning board, which is the master clinical body set up under the Correctional Services Act, not endorsing clinical parole, battling that Zuma was in a steady condition. 

Promoter Max Du Plessis contended for the benefit of the Helen Suzman Foundation that remedial administrations head Arthur Fraser's choice to endorse Zuma's delivery was illicit. 

Du Plessis said Fraser was a public official and had no ability to supersede the clinical board. 

"He had no degree to disregard what the board had said. The public official has no ability to supersede the board concerning whether the detainee has any extreme sickness or actual insufficiency ... The board is intended to give an autonomous choice to forestall political and different mediations on issues," he contended.Manyi hopes ‘justice will prevail’ as DA and AfriForum challenge Zuma medical parole in court (
