I have sought leave to appeal the judgement in a TRC-related matter concerning the right to legal representation, and a decision handed down by Acting Justice Martin. Needless to say I had to hand deliver the following document containing my grounds for leave to appeal, to the judge in chambers on floor 1 of the High Court. Walking past a long lineup of apartheid and colonial-era judges, their pictures still hanging on the wall. The respondent, Legal Aid South Africa, has already served notice of intention to oppose on behalf of the executive of the country. Does Cyril Ramaphosa have a heart? Obviously not.
