[LISTEN] 'Judge Hlope's appeal is consistent with what he has done previously'
Western Cape Judge President John Hlophe has reportedly slammed chief justice Mogoeng Mogoeng’s recommendation that he face a misconduct tribunal.
According to the Daily Maverick Hlope has accused Mogoeng of bias and suggests that a decision to call for a misconduct tribunal was motivated by an anti-Muslim sentiment.
The publication states that through his legal representative, Barnabas Xulu, Hlophe informed the JCC on Tuesday that he would be exercising his right in terms of section 17(7) of the Judicial Service Commission Act 9 of 1994 to appeal a decision by the chief justice.
Attorney and Judges Matter campaign co-ordinator Alison Tilley says she is surprised by the content of the letter to the JCC.
He makes some very very strong statements. The fact that he is taking it on appeal, I think that what we have seen in the past is Judge Hlope using every opportunity to test decisions that are made against him, so I think the fact that he is bringing an appeal, that seems consistent with what he has done previously but he certainly makes some quite inflammatory statements about the chief justice.Alison Tilley, Attorney and Judges Matter campaign co-ordinator
