South African Court Cancels Jacob Zuma’s Arrest Warrant

The High Court in Pietermaritzburg has cancelled an arrest warrant against South Africa’s former President Jacob Zuma after his lawyer handed in a doctor’s letter confirming his ill-health.

The arrest warrant was issued in February after Mr Zuma failed to appear in court for a hearing.

His legal team had said the former president had gone to Cuba for a medical procedure, but the court was not satisfied with the explanation.

The hearing has now been postponed to September.
