City of Johannesburg denounces misuse of legal system in dispute over city manager’s arrest

# The City of Johannesburg has denounced what it perceives as the misuse of the legal system in a dispute over the arrest warrant issued against its city manager, Floyd Brink. The High Court in Johannesburg has granted a stay of execution for the warrant, which stemmed from a rates dispute with Pibir Investments. Last week, a warrant was executed against Brink due to the city’s failure to comply with a court order regarding electricity disconnection to the business. The city accuses opposing parties of employing mischievous and politically motivated tactics.
