ACC WANTS CJ’S WARRANT TO STAND

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

MBABANE – The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) yesterday filed an application wherein it is seeking an order rescinding and setting aside the decision of Judge Jacobus Annandale withdrawing the warrant of arrest against suspended Chief Justice Michael Ramodibedi.


The warrant of arrest against Justice Ramodibedi, which is currently held in abeyance, was issued by Principal High Court Judge Stanley Maphalala.
Judge Annandale, who was arrested for rescinding the warrant but later had charges against him withdrawn, is said to have gone to Justice Ramodibedi’s place of abode to withdraw the warrant.


The ACC, through the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), yesterday filed an application where it is, inter alia, seeking an order to set aside Judge Annandale’s decision.
Justice Ramodibedi was yesterday served with the application by an officer from the ACC.  Through his lawyer Sipho Mnisi, he also filed a notice of intention to oppose the application.


The reasons why the suspended Cj is opposing the application by the ACC will be outlined in his opposing papers, which he is expected to file today at the High Court.
The matter will be argued at the High Court tomorrow.
Last Friday, Judge Mbutfo Mamba said there was no warrant to dismiss since Judge Annandale had already discharged Principal Judge Maphalala’s order.
