The records were filed in the high court in Pretoria on Wednesday.

These include leaked emails and bank statements whose veracity has been called into question.

Last week Ramaphosa’s legal team requested the court to seal certain information contained in the record of Mkhwebane's report on Bosasa.

According to a leaked court document, the high court's deputy judge president Aubrey Ledwaba has instructed that the records remain sealed.


 

The public protector's spokesperson Oupa Segalwe says the matter is in the court's hands.

"Our job here is to file the record with the court in terms of the court rules and therefore it will be up to the court as to what it does with the request that came from the president's attorneys.”
