The RSA judiciary has issued a media advisory and confirmed that the State versus Zuma and the Thales Group case is to be heard at the Pietermaritzburg court.
The South African judiciary issued a media advisory on Wednesday, 4 August 2021, confirming that the State versus Zuma and Thales Group case would be heard in the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Tuesday, 10 August 2021. The judiciary stressed that in an attempt to prevent the spread of COVID-19, strict social distancing protocols would be observed in the courtroom.
The judiciary stated that members of the media and the public would be requested to follow security procedures, as it would be communicated by the court officials in order to ensure the safety of all court users. The judiciary also informed that access to the courtroom would be for accredited persons only, and has advised that a very limited number of seats would be allocated for accredited members of the media inside the courtroom.
Members of the media have therefore been urged by the judiciary to submit their accreditation requests. The requests for accreditation need to include the individual’s name, name of media house/organisation represented, identification numbers, designation, as well as contact details. The judiciary further encouraged members of the media and the public to follow proceedings remotely via the eNCA broadcast.
