The contempt of court case against Julius Malema was taken off the roll on Tuesday.

The former ANC Youth League leader was expected to appear in the High Court in Pretoria. Details on why the case was removed from the court roll were not immediately available.

The curators of Malema's estate brought the application against him for allegedly failing to declare his assets.

Cloete Murray from Sechaba Trust and Aviwe Ndyamara from the Tshwane Trust Company were appointed curators of his estate at the beginning of March.

They were tasked with ensuring Malema declared all his assets following a court order and despite Malema agreeing to do so, he allegedly did not.

Malema's lawyer Tumi Mokwena told the Sunday Independent her client intended to oppose the contempt of court application.

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