General Council of the Bar expresses concern over Cato Crest evictions (23 September 2013).

On 23 September 2013 the General Council of the Bar (GCB) issued a press statement expressing concern about the recent evictions of over 100 informal settlers at Cato Crest in Durban. According to the GCB, "it is a matter of grave concern that, despite their repeated attempts to follow due process of law in enforcing their constitutional rights, the residents, including many women and children, have been left homeless and destitute." The statement explains that the residents were driven to occupy land at Cato Crest earlier this year after they were excluded from a project intended to provide housing to them and others in a nearby informal settlement.
