Johannesburg - Fifteen judges who failed to declare their financial interests will be reported to the Judicial Conduct Committee, the office of the chief justice said on Friday.

Spokesperson Lulama Luti said the Registrar of Judges' Registrable Interests Pat Gagai had confirmed that 15 judges had not disclosed their interests.

This was after one judge submitted the necessary disclosure form on Friday.

"The registrar is currently finalising the process of reporting judges who have not disclosed their interests to the Judicial Conduct Committee."

In terms of the Judicial Service Commission Act judges were required to fill out a disclosure form and return it to the registrar.

"The registrar verifies the number of completed forms received against the total number of judges who must disclose," she said.

"The registrar enters the information provided by judges in the forms into the Register of Judges' Registrable Interests."
