MEDIA STATEMENT BY THE SA NATIONAL DEFENCE UNION

PRETORIA, TUESDAY, 1 JULY 2014

ON THE ISSUING OF WRITS OF IMPRISONMENT BY PRETORIA HIGH COURT FOR SANDF AND AIR FORCE CHIEFS AS WELL AS SECRETARY FOR DEFENCE.

Today the North Gauteng High Court issued 3 writs of committal to prison for the Chief of the SANDF, Chief of the SA Air Force & the Secretary for Defence, respectively.

These writs are pursuant to a court order obtained 3 weeks ago that found that the 3 mentioned officials were in contempt of a previous court order directing them to reinstate 4 members of the SA Air Force, backdated to 2012 after their unfair dismissal. The same court granted the mentioned officials time to comply with the order of reinstatement before 14 June 2014.

Despite the SANDF having knowledge of the reinstatement order, it failed to comply, once again, without providing any reasons for such failure, resulting in SANDU assisting the affected soldiers with requesting the court for writs of committal to prison of the 3 officials.

The relevant writs are attached hereto.

It appears that the SANDF leaders regard themselves as above the law in failing, without any reason, to comply with high court orders against them. The leadership of the SANDF cannot expect members in the military to have respect and trust in their leadership when that very leadership irrevocably damages it's integrity and credibility by failing to comply with orders of SA courts.

Adv JG (Pikkie) GREEFF
NATIONAL SECRETARY: SANDU
