The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) in Bloemfontein has reserved judgment in the former president Jacob Zuma’s medical parol case.
Advocate Dali Mpofu told the court on Monday that the former Correctional Services Commissioner Arthur Fraser granted Zuma medical parole within the parameters of the law.
Mpofu argued that the High Court failed to establish that terminal illness was one of the criteria for granting medical parole. He said that the Correctional Services Act had empowered Fraser to protect the rights of inmates.
Meanwhile, the Helen Suzman Foundation’s senior counsel Max du Plessis said Fraser had failed to explain why he had overlooked the recommendations of the Medical Parole Advisory Board that Zuma should not be released.
