The case was brought by the Liberty Fighters Network (LFN), which argued that the lockdown restrictions were unlawful and unconstitutional because a state of emergency has not been declared.
In a statement issued by the cabinet, the government said it noted the judgment and said a response would be issued in due course.
“The court suspended the declaration of invalidity for a period of 14 days. This means that the alert level 3 regulations remain in operation for now.
“Cabinet will make a further statement once it has fully studied the judgment,” it added.
LFN’s Reyno de Beer told TimesLIVE that he was “relieved” at the judgment.
“The court agreed that the lockdown regulations are unconsitutional and invalid. The court realised that the mere suspension or upliftment would not have been a good idea, so it has given the minister [Dlamini-Zuma] two weeks to rectify the mistakes and report back to court,” he said.
This is a developing story.
