Lawyers for Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan have filed a review application asking the North Gauteng High Court to set aside a report by Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane that found he flouted the Constitution.

In addition he will also ask the court for a declaratory order that Mkhwebane, who has had two reports set aside by the High Court already, did not act in accordance with the Constitution or the Public Protector Act. The application was lodged on Tuesday morning in Pretoria.

In a notice of motion lodged at the court Gordhan's attorneys say he will ask the court to set aside both Mkhwebane's decision to investigate and the subsequent report as "unconstitutional, unlawful, irrational and invalid".
