The Democratic Alliance leader, Mmusi Maimane in a statement
said the unlawful decision on Monday to allow Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir
to depart South Africa, despite a clear High Court ruling prohibiting it, is an
affront to the Constitution and the principles on which it is based.
In allowing Al-Bashir to leave the
country, the government isn not only in contempt of court for disregarding the
High Court’s ruling, but also in violation of the international law, Maimane
added in the statement.
