The High Court in Pietermaritzburg has dismissed with costs the application of French arms company Thales, challenging racketeering and money laundering charges against it.
Thales and former President Jacob Zuma are facing corruption charges in connection with the multi-billion-rand arms deal in 1999.
Thales said in its application that the head of
the National Prosecuting Authority was mistaken in authorising a racketeering charge.
Thales argued that the head of prosecution did not have evidence of its involvement in the alleged corrupt relationship between Zuma and his former financial advisor Schabir Shaik."https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/141788202_3902836776435344_490711645656170903_n.jpg?_nc_cat=110&ccb=2&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=m_9_ylPTzHoAX8c56cc&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&oh=3ad3108f6b1fd279438e67fd93972261&oe=602F1876"
