Minister Bredell's Statement on Oudsthoorn Judgment
The Western Cape Government welcomes the judgment made by Honourable Judge Schippers. On Thursday 28 November, the court dismissed the leave for appeal with full costs.
This has yet again paved the way for democracy. I am elated that the court, by dismissing the leave for appeal, yet again reinforced the principle that all Speakers must perform their responsibilities impartially and in good faith or face the consequences.
We will be monitoring the situation in Oudtshoorn to ensure that democracy triumphs.
