High Court refuses Interim Interdict

The Western Cape High Court this morning decided to not extend the temporary interdict granted against certain Zone C and D abalone right holders by Judge Davis last week.

The temporary interdict was applied for by right holders in Zones E, F and G who are seeking a court order to require the Fisheries Minister to adhere to and implement the 2003 Abalone Fishing Policy.

The Minister has essentially admitted that her department no longer implements the abalone fishing policy but believes that the policy is not binding on her or her officials and that it is merely a guideline.
