The Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Ronald Lamola, has legally distanced himself from the recently granted medical parole of former president Jacob Zuma , saying he was not involved.

The department cited Zuma’s alleged sickness that saw him being whisked out of his Estcourt prison cell by the military health services to receive treatment at a facility in Pretoria.The move prompted the likes of the DA, Helen Suzman Foundation and AfriForum to challenge the decision as irrational, and they demanded answers.

Further raising eyebrows over the matter was Fraser’s own admission during an interview with a news channel this week that he overruled the parole board to grant Zuma parole.He narrated the events leading up to his decision to override the institution tasked with considering whether or not prisoners had a valid reason to seek parole on medical grounds.

Among the steps were that three medical opinions had been submitted in favour of freeing Zuma, but the medical parole board turned them down until his intervention.“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 … of the patient, recommendations were made to the medical parole advisory board … 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, reviewed the information available and then indicated that the conditions, based on the reports that we have, require us to release him,” he said.

Meanwhile, the DA’s spokesperson on justice and correctional services, James Selfe, on Thursday said they had written to the chairperson of the parliamentary portfolio committee, Bulelani Magwanishe, to request that the committee meet during the upcoming recess to deal with the matter.

“Fraser has indicated that he has a whole list of reasons for this travesty, and the DA urges him to share this list to be scrutinised by Parliament,” Selfe said. Read more: IOL News »

...He cant legally or illegally distance himself and remain in the same portfolio or Ministry... Will he also distance himself from this? Amaxoki Anc Ramaphosa has a tendency of doing things intentionally knowingly later he distances from any decisions taken especially when it comes to account. Let us forget the same minister Ronald Lamola staged an one man protest demanding Zuma to step down. He is in the Ramaphosa camp.

The news agency that still have to produce the Thembisa 10 babies or the Ekurhuleni eleven as per Nandos Why was he never to comment about the CC sanctions to imprison JZ? So let's see who signs off the medical bills that apparently the dpt of correctional services has to pay. Haibo kudlulwe njani kuwe ministerLamola?

Bruno mtolo was not involved Why is he distancing himself. He shud investigate shouldn't he. Oh yes. They only get a fat salary. He doesn't want to upset his handlers

Arthur Fraser says he put Jacob Zuma on medical paroleCorrectional services commissioner confirms the medical parole advisory board did not recommend Zuma’s release Ramaphosa says he put a known crook and Zuma loyalist in charge of prisons This guy deserves to be in the top 6 So?

BrunoMtolo Fraser probably got paid big to authorize the release of Zuma ahead of local elections. Said it before, will say it again, cyril is a slithering snake. You can never trust a snake But ultimately you are responsible as the minister, where is the accountability? Hoe can you distance yourself from your portfolio? Take action perform your duty as a public servant

Expected, nothing surprising here! Is this the same publication that published the Thembisa ........ 🏃🏾‍♂️🏃🏾‍♂️🏃🏾‍♂️🏃🏾‍♂️🏃🏾‍♂️😂😂😂 Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Ronald Lamola, distanced himself from Ex-president Jacob Zuma's controversial medical parole. He say he wasn't involved...

How the Act requires him to be involved 🤣🤣🤣. Minister so no oversight is done at Correctional Services Department? Tjo.... walaphisha entlek YaKastro Hes doing well, let Mr Fraser do what he's paid for If JZ's medical parole is to be reviewed even this one must also be reviewed ! We're tired of whites who're against blacks !

Ronald is a passenger in his department, sad indeed.

Its ok. It doesn't involve him anyway 🙄. At the end Cyril en his ANC accepted the for the President to be given a parole☺ I knew there something fishy going on. Okusalayo the MYANC and CyrilRamaphosa have welcome the medical parole Bruno Mtolo RonaldLamola it’s not good enough to leave him alone. Did he transgress departmental and correctional services policy, processes & procedure. If so, take him to task. This thing of ANGAZI is unacceptable! CC: PresidencyZA CyrilRamaphosa

SA is a Mess. A high profile detainee and minister knows vokol Oooo fok neee, himself ge legally distance 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 🤣😂 So a minister is often directly involved in parole related matters? Or he was expected to be directly involved on this one because it's Zuma

WATCH LIVE | Jacob Zuma's arms deal corruption case back in courtThe legal proceedings regarding former president Jacob Zuma 's medical records and his fitness to stand trial are on Thursday being heard virtually. I have been very fruitful ever since I have been investing with William_church0 . contacted Mr William after series of testimonies i saw online, i took courage and started investing with him. I have made my third withdrawal which are ten times the initial investment. This is a circus...What's a use of having a Judicial system. I noticed a crowd of people testifying about Mrs Sarah Jeff Chronis helping them earn from trading.. so I decided to give her a try and to my greatest surprise before 5 working days I received my profit . I guess someone might need her help as well . 👇👇👇👇👇 sarahjeffchroni

That's cool... But Fraser must be challenged..... This guy is not supposed to be distancing himself. He is supposed to be briefed and up to date with this matter as it involves a Former State President. Jeslik PresidentZuma ZumaParole Bjale gona di loma le barafi what a woes, standard ANC reply no such thing as a RACI metric

We still want to know what happened to the RAF funds that his company was grossly implicated in. Unfortunately, Ministers are just administrators, they not operational management. That is why they can be changed at the blink of an eye, commissors are the actual operating system of the department. He can distance himself until he reaches the end Indian Ocean.

Manje uthi kwenziwenjani Vele vele u gonna tell us who did wat who was involved who's not 🤣😂🤣😂ai afrikaaners ur trying hard No link to this article yet people commenting like they've read it 😕

Correctional services billed R398,000 for Jacob Zuma's private hospital stayThe correctional services department is engaged in discussions regarding the payment of a R398,000 bill for former president Jacob Zuma ’s stay at a private hospital, as he still enjoys presidential privileges. So this guy doesn't have medical aid? Aowa, mjita ke liability nou. If I enjoy this privilege all alone, it shows how ungrateful I’m because I got this opportunity from a post here as well and saw recommendations too. All thanks to the good work of linda_Stouffe Also tell the nation about de klerk and Mandela's bill

Best he involve himself. This shows how incompetent this whole ANC Government is. No one takes responsibility for anything. They just pass the buck. No wonder the country is in such a bad state. Am very much disappointed Mr lamola saying he don't know about the parole of Jacob zuma The decision.................................Minister Lamola, that's quite a distance 🤧😏

Heads can starts to roll now.who else to be blamed.A Frazer report to you, then you report to president. How possible you dont know where as president know and welcome the dizition. That dizition is nullified at once as is 1 man show as you say. Vele ubengadingeki nhlobo, okwakhe ukwamukela ukuthi JOB WELL DONE

PresidentZuma mos 😊 We are Zuma fatigue. Oops sorry.

While he distance himself Ramaphosa and the ANC have announced and they welcome the release of Jacob Zuma. Unless Lamola is not a member of the ANC,he is implicated collectively when the ANC welcomes the release of Zuma 😅😆🤣😅😁🤣😅 Mr President was not even involved. It was solely handled by Mr Frazer.

Don't say Arthur Fraser is a law unto himself. The dude report to you Ozzy, and you report to the President. Get involved! Yoh! Just like that? Ngempela...🤔 Yes honorable Lamola,make sure nothing sticks to you. The whole process is wrong and it should be dealt with by our president

Arthur Fraser admits he overruled parole board to free Zuma on medical grounds, but says he has the right to do soCorrectional 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. Just because it's legal doesn't mean it's ethical, apartheid and slavery was legal too Just because it's legal doesn't mean it's ethical, colonialism, apartheid and slavery was perfectly legal too 👊🏾
