The Pretoria High Court has ordered the Public Protector to release the state capture report by no later than 5pm today.

This morning President Jacob Zuma abandoned his attempt to halt and postpone the release of the report.

On Tuesday the High Court in Pretoria ruled that The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Congress of the People (Cope), Democratic Alliance (DA), United Democratic Movement (UDM) and former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor could intervene in Zuma's legal bid to interdict the release of the Public Protector's state capture report.

The court also struck off the roll the application by Minister Des van Rooyen due to lack of urgency.
