JSC to tackle report on 'white judges'
JSC will probe a report stating white judges may only be hired under exceptional circumstances.
JOHANNESBURG - The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) is on Monday expected to tackle a document reportedly suggesting that white men have no chance of becoming judges.
At the weekend one of the JSC's commissioners questioned its approach to the appointment of white men as judges.
Izak Smuts reportedly stated that if white males are only hired under exceptional circumstance the JSC should come clean to avoid wasting applicants' time.
But the South African Judicial Service Commission said it will only comment on the matter after the meeting on Monday.
The JSC's Dumisa Ntsebeza said, "Though I have preliminary views as to what I would say I think that would be inappropriate for me to give now."
