Created: Oct 27, 2014

The legal and labour relations specialists’ pool will comprise public service officials, who are experts in this field, including investigators, prosecutors and presiding officers to ensure that the full labour relations value chain is optimal.

Meanwhile, Cabinet said the transfer of functions and staff in the Superior Courts from the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development to the Office of the Chief Justice affirms government’s commitment to the independence of the judiciary.

The commencement of the initial phase of the transfer comes into effect after the Constitution Seventeenth Amendment Act, 2012 and the Superior Courts Act, Act No. 10 of 2013.

The Superior Courts Act enhances the administration of the magistracy by placing magistrates in every division of the High Court under the control of the Judge President of the division concerned.

“The Act assigns powers and functions to the Office of the Chief Justice, which was established as a separate state institution equivalent to a department by a Presidential Proclamation in 2010,” Cabinet said.
