The Aarto Act was declared unconstitutional and invalid by the Pretoria High Court.
The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) will proceed with its bid to have the Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences (Aarto) Acts declared invalid by the Constitutional Court (ConCourt).
This comes after the Pretoria High Court delivered its judgement last Thursday with Judge Annali Basson ruling that both the Aarto Act and Aarto Amendment Act “must be declared to be inconsistent with the Constitution in its entirety”.
Outa argued its case against both Acts in October last year.
While Transport Minister, Fikile Mbalula recently revealed that the Department of Transport will appeal the high court’s judgement, Outa says it will approach the ConCourt for the ruling to be confirmed in terms of section 172(2)(d) of the Constitution.
Outa’s senior legal project manager, Andrea van Heerden indicated that the organisation has until 3 February to file their papers.
