The North Gauteng High Court will tomorrow, 21 August, hand down judgment on the application brought forward by Corruption Watch and the Right2Know Campaign to review and set aside the findings of the arms deal commission.

The commission was set up in 2011 by former president Jacob Zuma, who appointed Judge Willie Seriti, to head the probe into allegations of fraud, corruption, impropriety or irregularity in the arms procurement deal in 1999.

In its report, the commission claimed that it had found no evidence of corruption in the deal, following which the civil society organisations approached the courts in October 2016 to have its findings overturned.

Time:               09h30
Venue:            High Court of South Africa, Gauteng Division, Paul Kruger & Madiba St, Pretoria
