​Section of Immigration Law ‘Unconstitutional’

Court rules that a section of the Immigration Act is unconstitutional as it allows for immigrants to be detained without any court oversight

The High Court in Pretoria has ruled that a section of the Immigration Act is unconstitutional as it allows for immigrants to be detained without any court oversight.
Human Rights Lawyers, spokesperson, Patricia Erasmus, points out that, "The High Court basically found that immigration detention may now not take place without mandatory and automatic judicial oversight."

Under South Africa's criminal law, all detainees must appear in court within 48 hours of arrest.
