The Zondo State Investigation Commission is given another 13 months to complete its work, Judge Wendy Hughes ruled in the Pretoria High Court on Monday.
Deputy Chief Judge Raymond Zondo asked for another 10 months in an urgent court application in early February.
Huges granted his application with a final additional 13 months. This means that the commission will have to complete its investigation by March next year.
This is the second extension that has been granted.
Zondo said in his application that he realized at the end of 2019 that “large volumes of work, statements, and evidence” still needed to be finalized.
