by on November 26, 2014

South Africa’s Supreme Court of Appeal has postponed indefinitely,  the appeal brought by convicted mend leader Henry Okah pending an amendment of his legal team’s argument on the matter  brought before the court.

In accordance with the leave granted him to appeal by judge Neels Clawson of the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg, Mister Okah came questioning the jurisdiction of the court to hear and adjudicate counts 1 to 12 of the charges brought against him as well as the conviction on count 13 related, to engaging in terrorist activities.

The panel of five judges led by Justice Naysa pointed out that in all the arguments and presentations of the appellant’s legal team, there has been no properly presented constitutional challenge of the relevant act 33 of 2004 which covers the protection of constitutional democracy against terrorist and related activities.
