Jacob Zuma Medical Parole

Following a short stint in prison, due to his conviction for contempt of court by the Constitutional Court, former South African President, Jacob Zuma, was placed on medical parole by the National Commissioner of Correctional Services, Arthur Fraser. The HSF took the position that the National Commissioner unlawfully overruled the recommendation of an independently constituted Medical Parole Advisory Board. Accordingly, the HSF challenged Commissioner Fraser’s decision in the High Court.
