The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said that it would investigate claims by previous President Jacob Zuma that investigator Billy Downer gave secret data to a journalist.Zuma had opened a case at the Pietermaritzburg Police Station, guaranteeing that Downer had violated the law.
Killjoy has been addressing the State in Zuma's defilement case and the previous president has been attempting to have him removed.Attention will currently move to the High Court in Pietermaritzburg to articulate on whether it will keep Downer on for Zuma's debasement case. That choice is normal next Tuesday. Nonetheless, Wim Trengove, likewise addressing the State, has effectively demanded in Zuma's defilement case that the cases of inclination by the previous president against Downer were closed numerous years ago.But Zuma demands that they are new, charging that Downer gave over his clinical records to a writer.
