Deputy Minister of Justice to take Small Claims Court to Bloemhof
18 Apr 2012In line with the department mandate to take justice services to all the Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development, Mr Andries C Nel, MP, will officially launch a Small Claims Court in Bloemhof. The launch is another step by the department to ensure that there is an established and functional small claims court in each of the 384 magisterial districts in South Africa.
