ConCourt to rule on Legal Aid vs Marikana miners case
The ConCourt will decide whether miners should've received funds from Legal Aid during the inquiry.
Legal Aid South Africa took the matter to the highest court in the land about its complaint against a High Court ruling that it pay for legal representation for the miners.
It says while it is not seeking a refund, it believes this will set a precedent for future cases.
Arguments were heard in May with advocate Dali Mpofu saying commissions of inquiry are now fundable and Legal Aid was obliged to support the Marikana miners.
Legal Aid South Africa argued that the High Court should not interfere with its discretion when it comes to allocating funds.
While it did end up paying millions for the representation of the injured and arrested miners at the commission of inquiry, it believes being forced to do so goes above and beyond its mandates.
Mpofu says there's been an amendment to le legal aid guide which changes their mandates.
