Former president Jacob Zuma lays criminal charges against Billy Downer

Former president Jacob Zuma has lodged a complaint of prosecutorial misconduct against the NPA’s Billy Downer. Zuma also laid criminal charges accusing Downer of leaking his medical records.

The NPA is committed to upholding due process and the rule of law and will assess the merits of the charges in an objective manner. We also note that these charges are laid while the matter is subject to judicial determination by the High Court in Pietermaritzburg and judgment is expected to be delivered on 26 October 2021.

While the law must be allowed to follow its course, the NPA is concerned about the context within which these charges have been laid, and the timing in light of the pending judgement of the High Court. Adv Downer SC is a highly respected prosecutor who has carried himself with integrity throughout his career in the NPA.

His reputation speaks for itself. All NPA prosecutors are required to act without fear and favour and should feel confident to deliver on their mandates without fear of intimidation. However, we will allow the Director of Public Prosecutions in KwaZulu-Natal to deal with the matter as and when she receives the case docket from the police.
