The Constitutional Court rules in favour of Suzman Foundation

By | 26th April 2018

Lauren Kohn is featured as a guest speaker on the Koketso Sachane Show on Cape Talk to discuss the recent Constitutional Court judgment handed down in terms whereof the Constitutional Court ruled in favour of the Helen Suzman Foundation to have the Judicial Service Commission’s (JSC) deliberations on appointing judges made public.

The Constitutional Court held, in a majority judgment, that a blanket ban of disclosure was unjustifiable in a democratic society which means that the public will now have access to the JSC’s record of deliberations in, inter alia, the 2012 appointment of Western Cape judges.
