The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has denied that the decision taken on the 783 counts of corruption and other offences against President Jacob Zuma is connected to what is happening against him politically.

CASAC has advised National Director for Public Prosecutions, Advocate Shaun Abrahams to respect the Constitutional Court to avoid what it terms unnecessary consequences.
