President Kgalema Motlanthe's office has agreed to consider a request by Johannesburg businessman Hugh Glenister to submit legislation disbanding the Scorpions to the Constitutional Court, Glenister's lawyer said yesterday.

Glenister, who unsuccessfully tried to block the state's plans to dissolve the elite unit, received a letter from the presidency saying his "submission will be considered before the president signs the bill into law".

The bill has still to be considered by the National Council of Provinces, signed by the president and then promulgated in the government gazette. - Sapa
