Jacob Zuma medical parole

Mandy Wiener interviews Anton van Dalsen, Legal Councillor for the Helen Suzman Foundation.

The Helen Suzman Foundation wants Arthur Fraser to explain why he placed Jacob Zuma on medical parole.

The Foundation says the parole was unconstitutionally granted by the Correctional Services Commissioner.

The medical parole advisory board declined Zuma’s application, but Fraser overruled it.

Mandy Wiener interviewed Anton van Dalsen, Legal Councillor for the Helen Suzman Foundation (scroll up to listen).

We have had no response… even though the Commissioner said last week he’ll be happy to provide reasons…

… the legislative and regulatory requirements for medical parole were not followed…

We’re going to court… to get a full record of the decision… We will ask the court to review and set aside the decision…
