Tolls Judge Asked to Recuse Himself

The Treasury advocate asks the presiding judge in the e-tolling case to recuse himself

The long-expected showdown on Gauteng's highway tolls got off to a dramatic start when the presiding judge was asked to consider recusing himself.
 
The Treasury's advocate, Jeremy Gauntlett, questioned Judge Louis Vorster's impartiality, and asked him to ‘consider’ his ‘position’ on the grounds he appeared to be agreeing with the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance's (OUTA) argument that the South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL) is in breach of its own regulations.
 
Gauntlett challenged Vorster after OUTA’s advocate, Mike Maritz, launched an attack on SANRAL’s lack of compliance with section 27 of its Act, which requires ‘meaningful’ public participation on tolling, saying this was the "... crisp point dispositive of this case."
