Government wants to oppose Boere-Afrikaner Volksraad’s demand for talks

The Boer Afrikaner Volksraad (Assembly) on May 6, 2014 gave notice to the President of the Republic and the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development, to notify them that the Volksraad intends to apply to the High Court of South Africa (Gauteng Department, Pretoria) for a court order against the government, to order them to disclose, in writing to the Volksraad, whether the Government is prepared to enter in discussions with the Volksraad, to negotiate the implementation of the concept of territorial self-determination for the Boer – Afrikaner nation or not, and if they would not be prepared to, the reasons for this.

The move came after the Government persistently refused to respond, over a period of more than two years, to the Volksraad’s representations on the matter.

Both of these Respondents delivered on May 28th, two hours before the expiration of the period within which they were obliged under court rules to answer, a Notice with the Volksraad’s lawyer, to inform them that they intend to oppose the Volksraad’s application in the court. This means that the Government must within the next 15 working days, i.e. no later than June 19, 2014, to deliver information detailing the base for their opposition.

The Volksraad is mandated by its voters to pursue our nation’s struggle for self-determination in the courts and the relevant international forums. The present application is a necessary step on the way there.

People are called to aid the Volksraad by registering on the VVK’s voters register and to contribute financially to defray the cost of this case.
