The judiary has confirmed that a Supreme Court of Appeal is facing an internal disciplinary inquiry after it failed to notify judge Mandisa Maya of requests to deal with the appeal filed regarding the medical parole of former president Jacob Zuma revoked.
The acting attorneys for the DA and the Helen Suzman Foundation wrote to judge Maya, saying the matter had to be fast tracked or otherwise it would only be resolved after Zuma's 15-months prison sentence.
The hearing on the former president's medical parole it's been pushed to take place in August.
Zuma's 15-months prison sentence will end in October 2022, and requests are being made that the medical parole appeal matter to be heard in the court session starting in February and again in May.
However due to communications mishap by the registrar at the Supreme Court of Appeal, including an incorrect email, the matter is unlikely to be heard in May.
It is now pushed that the appeal at least be heard in August.
