Invitation to Post-Judgment Media Conference
Date: 21 August 2019
From: Nelson Mandela Foundation

 Judgment in the “Apartheid Flag” case will be delivered by the Honourable Deputy Judge President P. M. Mojapelo tomorrow (Wednesday, 21 August 2019) at the Johannesburg High Court. In February 2018, the Nelson Mandela Foundation announced that it had made an application to the Equality Court for an order declaring that gratuitous displays of the old official flag of apartheid South Africa constitute hate speech, unfair discrimination and harassment based on race. The matter was opposed by AfriForum NPC and heard on 29 and 30 April 2019.

Please join us for a media conference after the judgment at the court stairs (in front of the High Court) with Sello Hatang, Chief Executive of the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

Venue: High Court of South Africa, Gauteng Local Division, Johannesburg - The courtroom will be depicted on the daily roll which will be posted on the Johannesburg Bar’s website or on the notice board.
Date: Wednesday 21 August 2019
Time: 10h00

Please confirm your attendance with Lee Davies.
