Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo on Monday said the commission will lay a criminal complaint with the police against Former president Jacob Zuma after he left the commission last week Thursday without permission.
Zondo said that the secretary of the state capture commission will make an urgent application to the Constitutional Court to compel Zuma to appear before the inquiry again and not leave until he was excused.
Zondo said that Zuma’s decision to leave the commission’s hearings without permission in the face of a valid and binding summons was a serious matter. Adding that it had an impact on the integrity of the inquiry, the rule of law, and public accountability. Justice Zondo said that he would determine new dates for Zuma to appear before the commission.
