The matter has to be linked to the ruling party when the police don't wish to take up the matter and the judiciary see it as unimportant. How can a chief Justice not take appropriate action to put a stop to this.

Execution of the laws enacted by parliament rest with the police who report to a minister - they should have investigated and charged the fraudsters.

The judiciary however have a lot to answer for and in my opinion they are letting the whole country down by not demanding a higher standard of ethical behaviour of their staff. It's one step closer to a disaster when you cannot believe that orders of court are valid and not fraudulent.

So South Africa joins the list of countries where the ruling party members can commit any crime they like and get away with it. Investors will be even more wary of investing now that even the courts are corrupt. We're fast becoming yet another Banana Republic.
