The Government has taken notice of the judgment finding warning level 4 and 3 unconstitutional and null, as reported in a statement on Tuesday.
The verdict was delivered today by the North Gauteng Division of the High Court
"The court has postponed the declaration of invalidity for a maximum of 14 days, which ensures that the Warning Level 3 Regulations remain in effect for the time being," the statement said.
The court also directed the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, in consultation with the ministers concerned, to review, amend and republish the regulations 'with due regard for the restriction of the freedoms granted by the Bill of Freedoms by each law.'
The Cabinet shall make a further comment as soon as it has thoroughly reviewed the decision, the comment shall be read.
The case was brought by the Liberty Fighters Network, which argued that the lockdown controls were arbitrary and illegal because the state of emergency had not been declared
