Security levels at Office of Chief Justice called into question


There is tremendous speculation about why the office of the Chief Justice was burgled, but not enough is being asked about how such an important institution could be so vulnerable to criminals.

Shadow Minister for Justice Glynnis Breytenbach has since questioned the level of the security at the Office of the Chief Justice, especially after such a critical case of National importance was just concluded on the Constitutional Court.

Breytenbach said the Democratic Alliance was not only shocked by the break-in at the OCJ, but added that her party was angered by it.

“The DA will be submitting parliamentary questions as to why there wasn’t adequate security at the office of the Chief Justice which allowed for the break-in to occur,” said Breytenbach this weekend.

“Like the robbery at the Helen Suzman Foundation, almost a year ago exactly, the DA views this as an act of intimidation.

“It is highly suspicious that the break-in occurred the day after the Constitutional Court handed down a damning judgement in which they were highly critical of the Minister of Social Development, Bathabile Dlamini, and the social grants crisis she has manufactured,” added Breytenbach.
