In order to fill what we felt was a possible gap in the arguments of the other parties to the ConCourt hearing on relicensing, GOSA decided we had to step in or face the risk of major issues being settled without a proper base of factual evidence. We have retained EXCELLENT Senior Counsel, and have applied to the ConCourt for admission as amicus curiae (a friend of the court). Our aim is to facilitate two things:

1) To offer to the court a 'solution' to the predicament they face with the relicensing issue they are faced with. In our view the entire relicensing issue is irrational in that it makes the FCA unworkable and is thus contra the Objectives of the Act, and thus it stands to be removed in toto from the Act, and

2) GFSA entered the case on the 10th of January and they have chucked everything including the kitchen sink into their submission. If they are not countered effectively we run the risk that their submissions will be seen to be accepted by the ConCourt and are thus res judicata... they cannot be challenged thereafter. GOSA has the information and the instinct to go for their jugular here... and hopefully have them removed from the field of play entirely.

But... this costs money! We estimate that we will need R350 000 for this fight. Please help.
