We are planning to hand over the petition to the President’s Office at parliament on Friday 11th June. Please continue to share this petition so that we can increase the 142 000 signatures to 150 000 signatures.
Thank you to all of you who have continued in your support of Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng and his rights to his religious beliefs.
Despite the attacks on him he has not shifted in his position even after the Judicial Complaints Commission (JCC) found against him after a submission was lodged by anti-Israel groups.
The Chief Justice has refused to apologise and has appealed the finding by the JCC.
The hearing for the appeal is taking place on Friday, 11th of June.
