DA welcomes findings in Hlophe misconduct

The DA has welcomed the findings by The Judicial Conduct Tribunal into Western Cape Judge President John Hlophe.

The tribunal has found Hlophe guilty of gross misconduct. It has compiled a report on a complaint lodged by the judges of the Constitution Court.

This after justices Chris Jafta and Bess Nkabinde reported that Hlophe approached them to improperly influence their decision on the pending case involving former President Jacob Zuma and French arms company Thint.

The tribunal found that he breached his oath of office in that he improperly attempted to influence the two justices to violate their oaths of office.
