Enviromental association's urgent interdict on Green Point Stadium fails

Premier Ebrahim Rasool has hailed the failed court bid to stop progress on Green Point Stadium.

The Cape Town Environmental Protection Associations asked the Cape High Court for an urgent interdict against the Stadiums demolition.

The association’s lawyers, city and provincial representatives and Fifa’s local organising committee met a judge in the chambers on Friday afternoon.

In a statement Rasool said he is confident that their planning processes were thorough, and that the association’s case will be refuted in court.

He said the city was well on its way to hosting the semi-final on a new Green Point Stadium in 2010.
