Continuation of these regulations has been an arbitrary infringement of Constitutional rights of South Africans
ActionSA calls for the immediate removal of all Covid-19 regulations
22 June 2022
According to internal leaked documents from within the national Department of Health, the Minister is considering setting aside the ill-fated, irrational and nonsensical Covid-19 interim regulations, concerning inter alia, the wearing of masks, limitation of gatherings and entry into South Africa
This is not a coincidence.
ActionSA’s case, along with other applicants, is against the Minister of Health and his department. Running scared from embarrassment and an inevitable loss – as science proves that the regulations are no longer needed – the government is now trying to save face and to attempt to render the application academic, and make it go away quietly.
We will welcome the victory for the return of freedoms of South Africans in whichever manner it arrives, but remain ready to continue our litigation should these regulations not be abandoned in totality.
