Shaik appeal ruling - (6 November 2006)
font face="Arial">The implication of today's judgement, in which Mr Shaik lost his appeal, puts the Scorpions and NPA on higher moral ground as far as formulating charges against Jacob Zuma is concerned.

Firstly, the time has now arrived for both the Scorpions and Zuma to show cause why Zuma should not now get his day in court, so that he can take the stand to answer for this corrupt relationship with Shaik for which the latter has been convicted and has unsuccessfully appealed. The public deserve to have the matter resolved once and for all.

Secondly, the Arms Deal is under the spotlight once more. It won't go away until it has been comprehensively dealt with by an independent Judicial Commission of Inquiry.
