Some high courts have not met their targets according to the judiciary's annual report released by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng.
Speaking on the report on Thursday, Mogoeng said several courts were under extreme pressure because of the high volume of cases.
Eyewitness News reporter Mia Lindeque shares more on Mogoeng's breakdown of the report.
He started off by saying that the high courts have been overstretched with work dealing only with this period under review from April 2018 to March 2019, saying the high courts had to deal with more than 13,000 criminal cases and 145,000 civil cases.— Mia Lindeque, Reporter - EWN
They managed to complete 81% of all the criminal cases and 79% of the civil cases. If you put it in perspective, you can understand why Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng said they are actually doing well under the circumstances they are working under.— Mia Lindeque, Reporter - EWN
