DA IGNORES KRA’S REQUEST TO ARGUE WHY PROCEEDINGS SHOULD BE PUBLIC
The Democratic Alliance are not responding to our repeated requests to be allowed to make representations at tomorrow’s disciplinary proceeding of Councillor Myers and Mayor Willemse. We are only asking for a chance to argue why the proceedings should be open to the public and the media. We sent them letters or left phone messages on 5 July, 27 July, 30 July, and 31 July. What message do you suppose they are trying to send us with their silence?
I suppose they must have already made up their minds, and are not willing to hear our arguments. They clearly want the proceedings to be held in secret. Now, why would the prosecution in quasi-judicial proceedings want to conceal those proceedings from the public? Can anyone help me with this? Am I missing something?
