Expropriation bill: AfriForum will go to court

2008-05-15 00:00

Cape Town — Civil rights initiative AfriForum has warned that it will resort to legal action if the controversial proposed Expropriation Bill is promulgated.

The Expropriation Bill is aimed at replacing the Expropriation Act of 1975, which, according to cabinet, does not conform with the Constitution. The 1975 act provides for expropriation for a public purpose, while the Constitution extends this to allow it "in the public interest".
