This morning, Judge Brian Southwood dismissed Minister Balfour’s application for leave to appeal against the decision by the Northern Gauteng High Court ordering that TAC and ALP be given access to the report of the Judicial Inspectorate of Prisons (JIOP) regarding the death of prisoner ‘MM’. MM died in a Westville prison after having been denied access to ARVs. Justice Southwood described the Minister’s application for leave to appeal as ill-conceived, and ordered the government to pay the legal costs incurred by TAC and ALP.

The JIOP report had already been released to the public in the wake of Judge Southwood’s earlier order. TAC and ALP believes that Balfour’s application for leave to appeal that order was a shameful waste of public funds. Balfour’s counsel, Adv. Moerane, explained Balfour’s motivation in seeking leave to appeal -- notwithstanding the fact that the report had already been released -- as being to refute allegation he had lied about the report.

TAC and ALP welcome Judge Southwood’s decision. The South African judiciary continues to uphold constitutional democracy and remedy abuses of public office by politicians like Minister Balfour.

As part of the settlement

As part of the settlement made a court order by the Cape Town Labour Court, Minister Balfour has also agreed to withdraw his defamation lawsuit against Dr Theron. Currently Minister Balfour's lawyers are working on filing a notice of withdrawal of the defamation case in the Cape High Court, thereby effectively closing the legal dispute between Dr Theron and the Department of Correctional Services and Minister Balfour.

Balfour had since removed

Balfour had since removed Petersen from the department after a deal was struck between the embattled correctional services minister and Sports and Recreation Minister Makhenkesi Stofile to swop their directors-general.
