IFP welcomes SCA judgment on Zuma charges case

Koos van der Merwe says full disclosure of facts will lead us to the truth


The Inkatha Freedom Party has welcomed the judgement by the Supreme Court of Appeal today, which has upheld an attempt for access to the records that led to the suspension of criminal charges against President Jacob Zuma in 2009.

"We welcome today's ruling, as we believe that the fullest disclosure of all the facts pertaining to this case will lead us to the truth, to the triumph of justice, and ultimately the closure of one of the most embarrassing chapters in our democratic era," said Mr Koos van der Merwe MP, IFP Chief Whip and Spokesperson on Justice

He added, "Today's ruling again affirmed that no one in South Africa is above the law. The IFP, as indeed the whole country, looks forward to the review of the decision by the former NPA boss Mokotedi Mpshe, into whether his judgement was sound and just."
