Cape Town - Housing activists, Reclaim the City, claimed victory after the Western Cape High Court dismissed an interdict against them by Growthpoint for protesting on a site belonging to the property developer.
Judge Judith Cloete dismissed Growthpoint Properties application for a final interdict against Reclaim the City, with the judge saying that the company had omitted to place all relevant facts before Judge Kate Savage, who had granted the interim interdict.
She said that if Judge Savage had all the relevant facts she might have come to a different conclusion.
Judge Cloete added that Growthpoint’s reasons given for the non-disclosure were “flimsy and unpersuasive”.
She also ruled that Growthpoint pay the costs of the first and second interested parties.
