S.African court opens way for new charges against Zuma

South Africa's appeals court on Monday overturned a previous judge's ruling dismissing graft charges against ruling ANC leader Jacob Zuma, opening the way for the re-opening of corruption charges against him only months before a general election.

The Supreme Court of Appeals said in its judgment that a High Court judge made several errors in a Sept. 12., 2008 ruling.

"The appeal is upheld with costs," judge of appeal Louis Harms said.
