R50 million Cuba donation: Constitutional Court dismisses Dirco’s leave to appeal application

The Department of International Relations and Cooperation’s (Dirco) leave to appeal against a court interdict obtained by AfriForum against the planned R50 million donation to Cuba, was dismissed by the Constitutional Court.

This follows after the High Court in Pretoria already dismissed an application for leave to appeal earlier this year. Everything now indicates that AfriForum’s review application to overturn the decision to make the donation will now proceed. AfriForum is optimistic that this review application will finally put an end to this bizarre and irrational donation.

“The fact that Dirco is attempting to appeal the interdict shows how desperate the department is to pay the funds to Cuba. This, while the people of this country find themselves in an extremely desperate economic situation,” says Reiner Duvenage, Campaign Officer for Strategy and Content at AfriForum.
