Public Participation process on the draft Land Court Bill

JUSTICE MINISTER RONALD LAMOLA HAS TABLED THE DRAFT LAND COURT BILL TO FAST-TRACK LAND CLAIMS – click the link below to have your say.

Lamola has said the Bill will ensure the permanent appointment of judges and other judicial officers to oversee land claims. In addition to the Land Court, there will be a Land Court of Appeal.

“In order to improve the current legislative framework and address its weaknesses comprehensively and holistically, the Bill seeks to establish a specialist Land Court, with its judgments, orders and decisions appealable at a specialist Land Court of Appeal. It seems appropriate that a properly constituted and capacitated ‘Land Court’, and not a ‘Land Claims Court’ under the Restitution Act, should be the forum to deal with all land related matters as regulated by various Acts of Parliament.”

As such, parliament has called for the public to comment, object or provide input on this draft Bill – BEFORE FRIDAY, 23 JULY.

This is an opportunity for you to influence this draft Bill before it is finalised by parliament.
