The labour appeal court is expected to deliver its verdict in an affirmative action case against the South African police on Friday.

Renate Barnard applied for the position of Lieutenant Colonel on two occasions in 2005, but was denied the position on the basis of her skin colour.

Trade union Solidarity’s Dirk Groenewald, who is representing Barnard, said the matter goes beyond this case furthermore he says there are also a number of other employees on which they have already instituted legal action against the SAPS.

Thereafter they will have to reconsider if the SAPS will have to probe the matter and whether  they will be able to resettle it.
