ConCourt sets date for former president Jacob Zuma's contempt case

The Constitutional Court has agreed to hear the State capture commission's contempt application against former president Jacob Zuma on March 25th.

The country's highest court has given Zuma until March 8th to file a response to the inquiry's case that he should be convicted of criminal contempt of the commission and sentenced to two years' imprisonment.

Zuma has yet to formally indicate whether he will oppose that application.

 

Freedom Under Law calls for Judge Hlophe’s suspension

Retired justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa and Freedom Under Law Chairperson Johann Kriegler has called for the Judicial Service Commission to suspend Judge John Hlophe following the dismissal of former Minister of State Security Bongani Bongo's corruption case on Friday.

Hlophe dismissed Bongo’s case of allegedly attempting to bribe Eskom inquiry evidence leader Ntuthuzelo Vanara.

Kriegler said Bongo’s acquittal constitutes yet another act of gross misconduct unfitting Hlophe for judicial office.

Kriegler said he was concerned at the implications for the administration of justice.

 

Cabinet approves Land Court Bill

Minister of Justice and Correctional Services Ronald Lamola briefed the media on Monday on Cabinet’s approved Land Court Bill, which gives effect to the sixth administration’s contribution to the country’s land reform policy framework.

The Land Court Bill was the outcome of the work done by the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Land Reform which is chaired by Deputy President David Mabuza.

The IMC has been seized with implementing the recommendations of the Presidential Advisory Panel on Land Reform and Agriculture.
