a 15 month child him against him. the constitutional court sentence, zoom to the childhood. last week's a contempt because he refused to attend a corruption hearing. and so he has refused to hand himself over to authority. he's told hundreds of supporters outside his home, but there's no need for him to go to prison. i mean, he is of a violent confrontation with police zoom calls to his supporters to protest peacefully. i call on all my support has to use peaceful means to protest against this injustice. i really must be clear. i'm not asking for sympathy, but justice. my colleague chris day one is outside the south african high court and joins us now. christine helped us out. his name is asking the high court to dismiss
11:09 am
the sentence imposed by the constitutional court. which court is more important. rebecca, in short, the corporate handed him that 50 month sentence is the highest court in the land. it is the apex court. what you might know is the supreme court. and so in b, i was off to that court handed down that ruling and that 50 mantell sentence as him, as lawyers went to that very court and asked that it review, it's the judgement and its ruling. it agreed to that. and then he came to this court and all that the police holt arrest while pending, of course, the outcome of that trial. so that is what he has done. but in short, the court that gave the sentence and that gave him that judgment, that he was in contempt of court is the highest court in the land. so what a legal experts saying that about zoom is appeal. how do they think the high court will react?
11:10 am
while most legal experts are often you hear that this court is simply going to reject mr. zoom is the case on the basis that it does not have the authority to overrule a ruling by the constitutional court. and so if that does happen, police have until wednesday midnight to take him to a correctional facility. now you'll outside that court, you see the sign there behind you, but zoom is not there. it's a virtual hearing. and the former president is at home and quite soon a towel, surrounded by hundreds of his supporters. that sounds like it could be a pretty tense situation. is it it certainly is, i mean his supporters have been gathering and converting. i'll tell you home for a number of days now. and on sunday, when he came out and addressed that, he actually said to them, you guys had formed the human shield, even if the police had come for me, they wouldn't have been able to get through you to get to me. now one thing must be noted is that them gathering outside is currently illegal because african is in the
