Former President Jacob Zuma has approached the Supreme Court of Appeal to have Advocate Billy Downer removed from his corruption case.

Zuma’s lawyers have submitted papers to the Supreme Court of Appeal to challenge the Pietermaritzburg High Court’s judgement.

It follows the High Court’s ruling that Downer would continue prosecuting Zuma in his Arms Deal corruption case. The former president had requested Judge Piet Koen leave to appeal. However, Koen dismissed Zuma’s plea.

In Zuma’s previous court appearance, Judge Koen informed the court that the trial had to proceed. However, Zuma argued that Downer won’t grant him a fair trail and wants him removed.
