The affordable education loan option
Johannesburg - An advocate who lost a racism case at the Competition Tribunal has been ordered to pay the legal costs, Sake24 reported on Monday.
This came after the tribunal last week dismissed Cape advocate Simba Chitando's complaints of racism and anti-competitive practices in the field of shipping law.
The tribunal found Chitando had failed to prove that there was a “long-standing understanding” between three white lawyers to exclude him from getting briefs.
Chitando, a Zimbabwean, was trying to prove that the lawyers had abused their dominant position in the maritime law industry and that they were racist and xenophobic.
The tribunal said he would stand a better chance of winning his case in the Equality Court and that this matter could not be remedied through the Competition Act. - Sapa
