Correctional services director-general Arthur Fraser insisted that his decision to go against the recommendation of the medical parole advisory board in granting former president Jacob Zuma medical parole was perfectly legal.

“They applied for medical parole… I think that is at the beginning of August where they applied and we were directed to the relevant structures, within our structure we got health care and then we got the medical advisory parole, so we directed that to them.

“So they allocated a doctor to go and do an observation as they do in all instances, they have done an observation and based on their engagement and assessment … on the patient, recommendations were made to the medical parole advisory board and those were made… the board did not approve for medical parole because they indicated that he was in a stable condition,” said Fraser.

“What I need to indicate is that when the advisory board provided those recommendations I had then, as the head of the centre, who has the authority to decide, then reviewed the information available and then indicated that the conditions, based on the reports that we have require us to release him (Zuma),” he said. headtopics.com

At some point Fraser was asked about his relationship with Zuma and he said he was not a Zuma man.He pointed out that he was “the first person to be purged by the Zuma administration” in 2009 because they believed that he was a Thabo Mbeki man. At that time he worked for the State Security Agency.

Fraser also categorically denied that he was behind the leaking of the so called spy tapes that forced the then acting head of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) Advocate Mokotedi Mpshe, to drop the arms deal corruption charges against Zuma.The charges were later reinstated after the DA fought a long court battle, arguing that the decision was irrational.
