SCA to hand ruling on Zuma 'spy tapes'
Judgement in an appeal by President Jacob Zuma and the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in the "spy tapes" drama is expected to be handed down on Friday by the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) in Bloemfontein.
Zuma and the NPA had conceded that former NPA boss Mokotedi Mpshe's decision not to prosecute the president for corruption charges was irrational.
The eight-year-long battle has seen numerous back and forth appearances by the NPA and Zuma.
In 2009, the 18 charges against Zuma were dropped but later in 2016, the NPA's decision was overturned by a full bench of judges.
After the High Court denied Zuma and the NPA direct access for an appeal they turned to the SCA. Last month, both legal teams conceded that the decision taken by Mpshe not to prosecute Zuma was irrational.
