JOHANNESBURG - President Cyril Ramaphosa's legal team is hoping the courts will help protect their client's financial information.

The team has apparently written to the North Gauteng High Court to request that details linked to banks accounts intended for the CR17 campaign not be made public.

The lawyers asked that documents obtained by Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane only be made available to the court and to the respondents.
