IPID in the Supreme Court of Appeal

The HSF appealed a decision of the High Court that declared lawful a settlement agreement between Robert McBride and the Minister of Police. In HSF’s view, the settlement agreement had the effect of countenancing an unconstitutional interpretation of the Independent Police Investigative Directorate Act. The matter was heard by the SCA on 15 March 2021 and judgment was handed down on 7 April 2021.
