cosatuTMG Digital reports that trade union federation Cosatu on Thursday denounced the “wasteful expenditure of taxpayer’s money by public representatives on frivolous legal challenges”.  

This blunt message was sent after recent court challenges involving various government ministers.  Cosatu stated:  “Our public representatives have become vexatious litigants‚ abusing the legal processes to defend the indefensible at times.  We support the sentiments and suggestions that all those‚ who are wasting taxpayers’ money in frivolous legal challenges‚ should be made to pay it back from their own pockets.”  Cosatu said further that legal advisers‚ “who continuously give unsound legal advice‚” should be removed from the state payroll.
