Appeal Court Slams Land Court Decision

Supreme Court of Appeal criticises the Land Claims Court ruling that restoring tribal land in the North West to the Baphiring community ‘is not feasible’, without any evidence

The Supreme Court of Appeal has sharply criticised the Land Claims Court (LCC) for ruling that restoring tribal land in the North West to the Baphiring community is not feasible, without any evidence.

The Appeal judges referred the matter back to the LCC to reconsider the feasibility of restoring the agricultural land known as ‘old Mabaalstad’ in the Koster district to the community.

The LCC was also ordered to take into consideration the nature of the land and surrounding environment and changes that have taken place since the dispossession in 1971.
