Western Cape High Court dismisses Hlope’s application for interdict against Parliament

# The Western Cape High Court has dismissed Judge President John Hlophe’s urgent application for an interdict to stop Parliament from holding an impeachment vote against him. He was challenging the process Parliament has followed and wants it to halt the vote until the Constitutional Court has reviewed its procedures. Judge Sulet Potterill struck Hlophe’s urgent application from the court roll. The vote will now go ahead in Parliament to remove him as a judge.
