Supreme Court reserves judgement in home repossession case


The Supreme Court today reserved judgement in a case that has been running for over 20 years, in which a litigant refuses to part with his house after a default judgement was issued by the Registrar of the High Court in 2001.

Hewat Beukes and his spouse, Erica Beukes, approached the Supreme Court to grant an order declaring the registrar's directives to sell their house invalid.
