Court grants FUL order

Today the Pretoria High Court handed down judgment, upholding FUL’s application with costs.  FUL had sought an urgent interdict against the Acting Police Commissioner allocating any function to Gen Mdluli, and against Gen Mdluli discharging any police duty, pending the application for judicial review FUL has lodged with the court.

The judgment upheld FUL’s claim to urgency and to its right to seek an order on behalf of civil society, when the police authorities had failed to act decisively in the matter.

The judgment is a powerful articulation of constitutional principle, relating particularly to the rule of law, vindicating FUL’s action.
