Pollex - September 2016

The Disaster Management Amendment Act 16 of 2015 supra (in Afrikaans text: “Wysigingswet op Rampbestuur”) appears in English and Afrikaans in Government Gazette No 39520, dated 15 December 2015.
In an appeal before a full bench of three judges the High Court in Kimberley in a case of kidnapping, robbery and murder, the majority judgment in the Asele case (by two of the three judges), inter alia, made the following remarks in para [20] in respect of sketch plans.
This month’s case is not about unlawful arrest and detention - in Pollex’s opinion, it is worse. It is about a civil claim by the plaintiff (Afrikaans: “eiser”) concerned, for general damages (Afrikaans: “skadevergoeding”) caused by the wrongful conduct of SAPS members.

Seeing rhinos in their natural habitat makes one's emotions seesaw from sadness to anger, from admiration to awe, as you move about in their habitat.
