Hi there and thank you for your question,
I will try to assist you with your legal question but please feel free to ask as many follow up questions as you like until you are 100% satisfied.
You will need to formally launch an application to stay (stop / cease) the magistrates court proceedings until such time as the high court has handed down judgment in its appeal. This is very important because the high court decision has a direct impact on the evidence that will be presented in the magistrates court proceedings. There is no way that the magistrate can refuse this application, and if he does, then you would have grounds to appeal that decision to the high court as well.
Also, if the original charge sheet is missing then the prosecutor should be forced to explain why, and produce a certified copy of the original!
