urgent application

R2K wants Ramaphosa to allow the media and the public to have access to the NDPP interviews and selection process.

The lobby group Right to Know (R2K) is in the High Court in Pretoria seeking an order compelling the President Cyril Ramaphosa to make the interviews for a new National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) public.

R2K wants Ramaphosa to allow the media and the public to have access to the NDPP interviews and selection process.

According to R2K's Mluleki Marongo, the court has confirmed the urgency of the application and will rule on its merits this afternoon.

They've made the ruling on the point of urgency... The judge has just said this is urgent and must be heard today, right now because the interviews are tomorrow.

So we've won on that procedural aspect and after lunch, we will argue the merits.
