PRETORIA, May 23 (Xinhua) -- South Africa's prosecution, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), said on Monday it will appeal against a High Court ruling that corruption charges against President Jacob Zuma should be reinstated.


Ruling on the case brought by the opposition last month, the High Court said that it was "irrational" for the NPA to drop the more than 700 charges against Zuma in 2009.


Addressing the media in Pretoria on Monday, the NPA Director of Public Prosecutions, Advocate Shaun Abrahams, said: "I have decided to apply for leave to appeal against the judgment."


He said he had instructed a state attorney to appeal to the Supreme Court against the ruling.


"I will carry out my duties irrespective of who the suspect is without fear or favor," he added.


In early 1999, Zuma was charged with fraud and corruption in contracts worth about 30 billion rand (about 1.9 billion U.S. dollars at current rate) in an arms procurement deal with European countries.


The NPA withdrew the charges, citing conspiracy against Zuma, weeks before the 2009 election in which Zuma won the presidency.

Britain mourned lawmaker Jo Cox on Friday after a man wielding a gun and knife killed the 41-year-old mother-of-two in a brazen street attack that has thrown the June 23 referendum on European Union membership into limbo.


Cox, a supporter of Britain staying in the EU, was shot and repeatedly stabbed in her own constituency near Leeds in northern England by a man who witnesses said had shouted "Britain first".


She was pronounced dead just over 48 minutes later by a doctor working with a paramedic crew trying to save her life. A 52-year-old man was arrested by officers nearby and weapons including a firearm were recovered.


The killing prompted a halt to campaigning in the EU referendum. Though the motives of the killer were not immediately clear Old Skool Red , some speculated that sympathy for Cox could boost the Remain campaign which has fallen behind Leave in recent days.


Police said they were not in a position to discuss the motive of the attack.


"Jo believed in a better world and she fought for it every day of her life with an energy and a zest for life that would exhaust most people," Cox's husband, Brendan Old Skool White , said.


"She would have wanted two things above all else to happen now, one that our precious children are bathed in love and two, that we all unite to fight against the hatred that killed her."


Britain's Union Jack flag was flying at half-mast over the Houses of Parliament Old Skool Black , Downing Street and Buckingham Palace, while in Birstall hundreds of people attended a vigil at a local church.


Some people, many weeping Old Skool , laid flowers outside the Houses of Parliament. Others threw flowers onto the houseboat on the Thames where Cox had lived with her husband and young children.


British politicians paid tribute to Cox and expressed shock at the killing, as did leaders across Europe and the world.
