Johannesburg Bar grants media access to Menzi Simelane disciplinary

2014-02-26 17:14

In a ground-breaking decision by the Johannesburg Bar, two media houses have been granted access to the disciplinary inquiry of Advocate Menzi Simelane, the former director-general of the justice department.

The inquiry, which consists of advocates Sias Reynecke, Danie Berger and Dali Mpofu, appointed by the Bar to preside over the matter, ruled that the “Johannesburg Society of Advocates is much more than an ordinary voluntary association. Its members perform an essential role in the administration of justice, interacting with members of the public and the judiciary in all the courts on a daily basis ... there can be no doubt that the society and its members have a very public profile”. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
