Correctional services commissioner Arthur Fraser's decision to grant medical parole to Jacob Zuma was unlawful, the DA argued in an application before the high court on Friday.

Steenhuisen said, alternatively, the commissioner's decision was materially influenced by an error of law in believing that he was entitled to grant medical parole when the board had concluded that Zuma was not ill enough to warrant it.Second, for Fraser – who is not a medical expert – to ignore the recommendation of the board, which is made up exclusively of medical experts, is irrational, unreasonable and constitutes a failure to take relevant circumstances into account.

“It cannot be ignored that we appear to have been here before. In 2005, Schabir Shaik was convicted and sentenced to 15 years' imprisonment for corruption,” he said, in reference to Zuma's former financial adviser.In 2009, after having been in prison for less than two years, Shaik was released from prison on “medical parole”.

“Since then he has regularly been seen golfing, allegedly throttled and slapped a journalist and was accused of punching and slapping a man at a mosque during an argument over parking,” Steenhuisen said.He said this was not the conduct of a terminally ill man. headtopics.com

This crook got instructions to release 🚿 from the top. I wonder what they will say/do when the concort dismisses his recession application😏 They must go to hell Maimane opened his party n he is their competition now they must focus on campaigning.....

Zulqarnain AS had built a wall on this opening trapping them inside. This vision is from a dream of Muhammad Qasim.

DA is a political wing of a certain faction within the ANC. Are they also the Judges? Are they not in the politics? Who gave them the power to judge? The time has come now that the DA must be accountable for everything bad happens in the country because for them to get power they create problems with their dangerous demands not election.

Forget DA,this is wrong and unlawful. Campaign for election, don't use R350 and the release of Zuma to get votes. Do you know how awkward it will be if turns the DA is right? Sorry Sir, you might have to go back to prison while we sort this out. Then he goes back for the full term and the 3 months left, which I presume it the reason he was released is multiplied

“Argued” where? They made submissions in their application. Hayi suka These are black people - white laws are a foreign concept to them - they create their own laws as they go. How that affects the general public, they don't care as long as it doesn't affect them.
