The Democratic Alliance
condemns the decision by the South African Government to allow President Oamr
al-Bashir of Sudan to leave the country, despite a High Court order prohibiting
DA shadow Minister of Justice
Glynnis Breytenbach said, the DA is currently in consultations with its lawyers
to ensure that the government not be allowed to sidestep accountability.
Breytenbach said, this sets a
disturbing precedent that the executive is allowed to simply ignore the rulings
of the High Court of South Africa.
“The DA is shocked and
appalled by the state to let Mr al-Bashir to leave the country while an order
issued by the High Court of South Africa stated that he remains in the country
until the matter had been finalised. It is quite clear that the government
doesn’t take the rule of law, the law of South Africa and that it is a law unto
itself”, Breytenbach added.
