PanSALB is of the view that the rights of South African to access justice in the language of their choice has been somewhat taken away. This move contravenes the Use of Official Languages Act, 2012 and Justice Department's language policy passed last year, which recognises three official languages nationally as well as the languages spoken regionally. read more
