Hon House Chair, the IFP once fully empathising with the difficult person's situation which is fate, Meyburgh finds herself in, supports the recommendation of the magistrate to commission for her removal from office in terms of section 13 (4) (a) 2 of the Magistrates Act.
Magistrate Meyburgh's incapacity has not only placed great pressure upon her personally but also upon her service as a judicial officer in the area over which she presides as a magistrate.
As a result of which her office is in a state of dysfunction, which compromises the delivery of justice in her court room, justice delayed is justice denied and Magistrate Meyburgh is unfortunately unable to fulfil her duties due to her continued ill-health.
We note that Magistrate Meyburgh has been afforded an opportunity to address her illness and suggest alternatives to her current form of employment, but that no such representations were received.
In conclusion, the IFP therefore concurs with the report, the findings and the recommendations. I thank you.
