Arms Deal Saga - Zuma, Arms Company Face South African High Court

Former president Jacob Zuma and French arms company Thales are facing charges of fraud, money laundering, corruption and racketeering for a series of alleged bribes paid to Zuma through his former financial advisor Schabir Shaik during the multibillion-rand arms deal in the late 1990s. In 2017 a court ruled against a 2009 decision by prosecutors to drop the corruption charges against Zuma just months before he became president.
