Judge who issued Zuma's arrest warrant could get ConCourt job
Feb. 13, 2020
After issuing former president Jacob Zuma with a warrant of arrest, Judge Dhaya Pillay was moved into the spotlight. Now, the High Court official has been shortlisted for a spot in the Constitutional Court.
High Court Judge Dhaya Pillay has been shortlisted as a possible candidate for a vacancy in the Constitutional Court.
Briefly.co.za reported that Pillay had issued a warrant of arrest against former president Jacob Zuma to mixed reviews.
This had come after the politician had failed to appear, submitting a questionable sick note which Pillay had dismissed as insufficient evidence.
Last year, Pillay had ruled in favor of former minister Derek Hanekom when he had placed defamation charges against Zuma for referring to him as a 'known enemy agent'.
Now, the Judicial Service Commission had listed Pillay among 8 candidates hoping for a seat in South Africa's apex court.
In a statement issued by the commission, citizens were encouraged to give their opinion on the candidates:
