President Jacob Zuma is seeking leave to appeal the State Capture judgment.
Earlier this month the High Court in Pretoria ruled that none of the President's grounds to review the Public Protector's State of Capture report have any merit and cannot succeed.
Judge President Dunstan Mlambo ruled that the remedial action proposed by the Public Protector in the State of Capture report is lawful, appropriate, reasonable and rational.
Zuma has also been ordered to personally pay the costs of his failed attempt to stop the release of State of Capture Report.
Eyewitness News reporter Gia Nicolaides has more on this development.
We understand that President Jacob Zuma is seeking leave to appeal on twenty grounds, which include arguments that the court is wrong to order him to pay legal costs.— Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter
We also understand that Zuma's lawyers are arguing that the High Court was wrong to say that he was ill-advised and reckless to challenge the State Capture Report when the Constitutional court has stated that government should approach court when there is uncertainty over the Public Protector's remedial action.— Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter
