Former president Jacob Zuma’s medical report is expected to be submitted to the High Court sitting in Pietermaritzburg next Friday.
The State will also conduct its own medical assessment on Zuma.
Former president, Jacob Zuma, is admitted to an outside hospital for medical observation. The Department of Correctional Services says the move was prompted by a routine observation.
Zuma is currently serving a 15-month prison sentence. He was found guilty of contempt of court.
The State’s Wim Trengove said that they were completely in the dark about former President Jacob Zuma’s medical condition, which has been used to justify yet another postponement of the case against him and Thales.
“The doctor’s letter doesn’t identify the medical condition of which he suffers at all, and says quite perplexingly, that it was a condition that has required extensive emergency procedures, which have been delayed for 18 months,” Trengrove said.
The matter is back in court on 9 September.
