PRESS STATEMENT: Africa4Palestine picketing and joining legal case between Israel lobby & SA Minister of Arts
6 December 2021
The human rights organisation Africa4Palestine has submitted an application with the High Court of South Africa (Gauteng Division Pretoria) to be Amicus Curiae in case number 60035/21.
This case has been brought by members of the Israeli lobby against the Government of South Africa and South Africa’s Minister of Sports Arts and Culture. The Israeli lobby, through a front organisation “Citizens of Integrity”, want the Minister to retrospectively overturn his decision to withdraw his support for Miss SA being in Apartheid Israel.
#Africa4Palestine is represented by a legal team led by Shaa’ista Bulbulia of Govender Patel Dladla Incorporated.
