The Land Court Bill

The Land Court bill

The Land Court Bill (the “Bill”) has recently been published for comment, with its purpose set to establish and regulate a Land Court and a Land Court of Appeal. Currently, the Land Claims Court possesses exclusive jurisdiction in matters such as restitution claims arising from the Restitution Act and in dealing with issues arising from the application of the Land Reform (Labour Tenants) Act No. 3 of 1996. 
The purpose of this Act is, among other things, “to create offences which have a bearing on cybercrime; to criminalise the disclosure of data messages which are harmful …” and creates mechanisms and procedures for determining and prosecuting the criminalised activities enumerated therein.
