Former president Jacob Zuma has demanded that he be acquitted of arms deal corruption - without ever facing trial - because the State has "lost the constitutional legitimacy to present the evidence against me".

Zuma was responding to arguments by lead prosecutor Billy Downer, who says the former president's efforts to seek acquittal through a so-called "special plea" process are legally ludicrous.

This, Downer said, is because special pleas are used to attack the "title" of an advocate to prosecute a case and, in any event, can only result in the removal of the prosecutor.

There is no legal precedent for them resulting in the acquittal of an accused person.

And what happend to his Zondo no-pitch plea?

Nothing. The government, courts and police will not dare touch him.

This is another walkout thing.

If the court refuse to acquit him, he will simply not come back to court.
