Special Resolution: The Deputy President of the ANC

21 September 2006

Noting

  1. The outcome of the case against the Deputy President of the ANC in the Pietermaritsburg High Court
  2. The comments of the Judge about the case.
  3. The role of the NPA and other state agencies in building a case against the Deputy President of the ANC through the use of media and unsupported insinuations
  4. The failure to protect the basic constitutional rights of the Deputy President of the ANC
  5. The position adopted by COSATU to defend the basic constitutional rights of the Deputy President of the ANC
  6. The continued controversy surrounding the arms deal and that COSATU has called for a full investigation of the arms deal

Believing

  1. That the Deputy President of the ANC and COSATU have been vindicated
  2. The NPA and other state agencies have not acted in good faith and should not be used for narrow political ends
  3. That the constitutional rights of all citizens must be protected
  4. That corruption needs to be combated and rooted out
  5. That attempts to re-introduce charges on this case will amount to a malicious prosecution of Jacob Zuma.
  6. That the judgement in the Shabir Schaik case in so far as it makes a finding on Jacob Zuma undermines the common law principle of hearing both sides

Resolve

  1. Call for the urgent convening of the alliance to discuss the political management of this matter
  2. COSATU calls for the judiciary to protect SA democracy, without being influenced
  3. The Scorpions should be incorporated into the SA police services under one Commissioner
  4. To reaffirm the decisions of the Central Committee of COSATU in relation to the JZ case, including the call for a full and impartial investigation into the arms deal
  5. To welcome the judgement and to call on all parties to respect the judgment, and to congratulate the Deputy President of the ANC on the outcome of his court case. In addition Jacob Zuma should be treated as any other innocent citizen
  6. To call for the legal moves against the Deputy President of the ANC to be laid to rest once and for all
  7. To call for a review of the activities and role of the NPA and other state agencies
  8. To call for the immediate reinstatement of Comrade Jacob Zuma to the position of Deputy President of South Africa.
