On Friday 16 January I received Notice from the State attorney that they will not oppose my motion to stay prosecution which was filed in the High Court in Pietermaritzburg.
Given the number of precedents in similar cases countrywide, as well as the state’s intention to abide, the ordering of the stay by the high court is now a mere formality.
Important to note that this entire process was conducted without a lawyer and cost me less than R2000, including travel costs and document printing and serving fees. This same process is available to anyone being persecuted under prohibition law in South Africa.
