PAC case postponed again

2010-04-23 13:31
Cape Town – A court case against a faction of the Pan Africanist Congress regarding the use of the PAC name at a convention was postponed for the third time, the grouping said on Friday.

The faction's Western Cape secretary general Lulamile Ntonzima said the prosecutor who had the case file was not in court, resulting in a postponement.

"We are not panicking, this is a testing moment for us to show our dedication to the PAC," he said.

"We cannot steamroll the process, we will stand by till the end, until the issue is resolved."

The faction did not have a lawyer representing them, said one of its members Jimmy Xalipi.

"We do not need a lawyer because we are not guilty," he said.

Convention

Anwar Adams, PAC Western Cape chairperson, had laid a case against the faction for using the PAC name at a convention held last year, said Xalipi.

Western Cape High Court Judge Dennis Davis ruled last year that a gathering organised by a faction of the PAC could take place but could not be called a "third PAC national convention".

He said that he could not stop a group of people from meeting and discussing issues but that the PAC constitution made no provision for a national convention.

His ruling followed an urgent application by the PAC to bar the faction from "the calling or convening of the '3rd PAC national convention'."

The case will go to trial on June 9, in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court.
