Acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has responded appropriately to the latest attack on the Constitutional Court's headquarters.
Acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has commented on the recent incident that resulted in damage to the glass of the building that houses the Constitutional Court. A demo hammer was used to damage the construction of Braamfontein's largest court on Wednesday. This sparked the incident that occurred there.
In a proclamation delivered to honor the circumstances, Zondo expressed his joy while also expressing his fear of the guilty individual.
"The Acting Chief Justice was impressed by how quickly security professors and police were able to apprehend the criminal and prevent further damage to the structure. Despite this, he accepts that the occasion should be pursued with vigour, and he encourages all law enforcement to take all reasonable precautions to protect themselves from future attacks of this nature."
RISK ASSESSMENT CALLS RAISED FOLLOWING ATTACK
Regardless, Zondo has directed that a thorough investigation be conducted to uncover any potential threats at major workplaces in order to aid the judiciary.
"Moreover, the Judiciary. requests that state organs and functionaries responsible for state workplaces and security organizations ensure a risk and hazard based assessment of plans encompassing key court workplaces and major assets," the movement reads.
The court's plan has not been hampered by the attack.
Furthermore, Zondo demonstrated that the incident had no effect on the facility's primary job.
"It is critical to clarify that the Justices and court employees are not in any way handicapped in performing their duties as a result of this incident. In any case, the security of the judiciary, as well as the supporting faculty and the general public, is jeopardized by such an event, and it is critical that this be given serious consideration."
Furthermore, the evidence established that, notwithstanding the tumultuous nature of the occasion, no single injury was sustained.
"Despite the fact that the courthouse was damaged, no one was injured as a result of the incident, and work has already begun to repair the damage, the Acting Chief Justice is encouraged by these developments. It is natural that the evaluation directed by the offices in charge of the legal requirements would reveal the reasoning system that led to this occurrence."
"These attacks and hazards are intended to start the disintegration of these major workplaces that the entire society relies on for the protection of their pre-determined privileges," says the report.
