In related news: Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has condemned the manner in which advocate Malesela Teffo was arrested last week. Zondo says the arrest of anybody, let alone a legal practitioner, inside a courtroom is completely unacceptable and “shows disrespect for the judiciary”. Zondo added, there was no justifiable reason why the police could not have waited for Teffo to leave the courtroom and the court premises before they could arrest him.
