National Director of Public Prosecutions Shaun Abrahams has written to the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (Casac) saying he has made a decision in the case against former President Jacob Zuma and is ready to publicly announce the decision.
Abrahams has asked Casac to waive the two-week notice period he committed to.
Last year, the Supreme Court of Appeal set aside the nearly decade-old decision to halt the case against the former president.
A total of 783 financial transactions involving Zuma make up the 18 charges, including fraud and corruption, to be prepared in an indictment.
A team of prosecutors led by KwaZulu-Natal National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) head Moipane Noko and including the original Zuma prosecutor, advocate Billy Downer, submitted a memorandum on Friday.
Abrahams will now consider the recommendation that Zuma once again be charged and appear in the Pietermaritzburg High Court.
Casac had received an undertaking from Abrahams that he would give them two weeks’ notice before announcing his decision.
More than 200 witnesses have already told prosecutors that they are available to testify against Zuma if needed.
