The Hon Judges of the Constitutional Court
RE: JOINT STATEMENT BY JUSTICES NKABINDE AND JAFTA
I have received a joint statement by Justices Nkabinde and Jafta which they say they intend no complaint nor any statement.
The Judges of the Court have gone on record as having lodged a complaint and the Commission has a written complaint by them in its possession.
As you know, the Commission cannot deal with a complaint unless there is evidential material to support it. May I ask the other Commissioners please be advised:
(a.) is a complaint to be pursued?
(b.) If so, what is the evidence to support it?
(c.) If not, the Commission, Judge President Hlophe and the public need to be so informed.
