The Judicial Services Commission (JSC) has affirmed beset Western Cape Judge President Judge John Hlophe, is relied upon on Friday to partake in interviews for the arrangement of judges to serve on the Western Cape Division of the High Court.

 

This is in spite of the Judicial Conduct Tribunal’s decision recently that saw him as blameworthy of gross wrongdoing.

Non-benefit association Freedom Under Law (FUL) kept in touch with the JSC, on 16 April 2021 getting some information about Hlophe’s investment in the meetings.

This is after the council discovered he had inappropriately endeavored to impact Constitutional Court, judges Chris Jafta and Bess Nkabinde to decide for former president Jacob Zuma.

The case was regarding the arms bargain examination.

FUL CEO Nicole Fritz shared a letter via online media from JSC secretary Sello Chiloane affirming Hlophe’s cooperation on Friday.

“Judge President J M Hlophe will shape part of the JSC when talking possibility for two opening in the Western Cape Division of the High Court on Friday, 23 April 2021,” the letter read.

Fritz contended in a letter in 2016, the JSC had demonstrated that the “shortfall of suspension from office or a blameworthy decision” by the court didn’t keep Hlophe from partaking in the determination interaction for judges.

She said since the council had seen the adjudicator as blameworthy of unfortunate behavior, he ought not partake simultaneously.

“For what reason will not the JSC act as per their own expressed convictions?” Fritz said.

Hlophe denies claims

Hlophe denied the claims against him in an articulation gave by his legal counselors, B Xulu and Partners Incorporated, a week ago.

He said he never set out to impact or convince Jafta and Nkabinde to abuse their vow of office and he would at the appointed time address the “fitting discussion” on his conflicts against the court’s decision.
