Call to Declare ‘Operation Fiela’ Unlawful

LHR to seek a court order declaring government’s Operation Fiela unlawful and unconstitutional

The Lawyers for Human Rights (LHR) would seek a court order declaring government’s Operation Fiela unlawful and unconstitutional.

The organisation argues that Operation Fiela, a national operation by the police, the army and the Department of Home Affairs’ immigration services was carried out without compliance with the law and without search warrants.

It says it is ‘was gravely concerned’ that operations that were conducted violated of section 14 of the Constitution, which guaranteed the right to privacy and not to have one’s home searched unless it was authorised and done in accordance with legislation.
