Former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema is expected to appear in the High Court in Pretoria this week on charges of contempt of court, according to a report today.

Malema will appear in court on Tuesday after the curators of his estate brought the application against him for failing to declare his assets, The Sunday Independent reported.

Cloete Murray from Sechaba Trust and Aviwe Ndyamara from the Tshwane Trust Company were appointed as the curators of his estate in the beginning of March, and were tasked with ensuring Malema declared all his assets following a court order and despite Malema agreeing to do so, he did not carry this out in practice.

Malema's lawyer Tumo Mokwena told the newspaper that her client intended on opposing the contempt of court application.

If found guilty, Malema could face a R500,000 fine, a jail term or a suspended sentence.
