All parties involved in Ramaphosa vs PP case had full access to CR17 record, including the EFF There is no evidence of judges being paid by CR17 in record. But, if judges reject EFF case for CR17 records to be unsealed, they face being accused of involvement in CR17 “plot” 1/2

Asking that Julius Malema and Fmr Pres Zuma back up their claims that judges were bribed by CR17 with evidence is NOT the same as arguing that the CR17 records should be sealed. The EFF case for unsealing is before the High Court. Let it decide it on the merits, not rumour

High Court has granted the Zondo Inquiry a three month extension, meaning it will complete its report by 30 June. Commission said it had lost three months as result of #COVID19  lockdown.

So much love for you Doc. Please get well soon. ❤️

Controversial North-West NPA boss Moipone Noko tells my colleague @J_chabalala  that she resigned because she was “tired” of being “bashed and vilified” - and not because she was facing an inquiry into her fitness to hold office.

The EFF’s case for unsealing of CR17 records is an important one. But unsubstantiated claims about CR17 paying judges threaten to undermine that case. If judges rule against, they’ll be called corrupt. If they rule for, they’ll face accusations they were intimidated 2/2
