Zuma rescission application dismissed with costs

Corruption news

The Constitutional Court on 17 September dismissed the application by former president Jacob Zuma to rescind its 29 June judgment which found him guilty of contempt of court. Zuma had based his argument on two grounds - that the order was made in the party’s absence and that an error was made by the court that granted it - neither of which found favour with the justices. Zuma was ordered to pay the commission's legal costs.
