Reports on appointment: candidates and process (October 2017)
Submission and Research report on the Judicial records of nominees for appointment to the High Court.
The intention of these reports is to assist the JSC by providing an impartial insight into the judicial records of the short-listed candidates. The reports are also intended to provide civil society and other interested stakeholders with an objective basis on which to assess candidates’ suitability for appointment to the bench.
This supplementary research report covers the five candidates added to the shortlist of candidates for the Western Cape High Court. As we only became aware of these additional candidates after the completion of our main research report into the other candidates, we have prepared this separate supplementary report.
