#DrNandiphaMagudumana has appointed Advocate Anton #Katz to deal with her Free State High Court urgent application to declare her arrest and deportation in Tanzania unlawful. Katz is considered a leading expert in the field of international law. Image
#Katz is arguing that Magudumana's deportation was in fact a "disguised extradition" as there was "collusion between SA and the Tanzanian officials to hand the person over." He says it was clearly an extradition and not a deportation according to international law.
#Katz is basing his argument on a ruling made by the Constitutional Court in a 2001 judgment of #Mohamed and Another v President of the Republic of South Africa and Others - Mohamed was a Tanzanian citizen wanted in the US and was handed over to the #FBI by the SA government.

The boy gets in the car and introduces himself as Robert and is en route to an area near Orange Farm. From the go I could tell that he didn’t have much, he explained that he was living with his gran.
