JOHANNESBURG - The Justice Project South Africa (JPSA) says it has found possible discrepancies between the English and Afrikaans versions of the e-toll tariff notices published in the government gazette.

The organisation says motorists might be able to claim an e-tolls tariff refund because of the conflicting amounts indicated by the gazette.

JPSA national chairman Howard Dembovsky said the two notices conflict with one another.

"What has to happen is the tariff gazettes need to be withdrawn and resubmitted and then everything will be hunky-dory."

The e-tolling system finally went live at midnight on 3 December after months of legal wrangling, protests and calls for civil disobedience.
