The High court in Pretoria has dismissed an application by the company running the National Traffic Information System (eNatis).
The company, Tasima, appealed an earlier ruling that it must immediately vacate it’s offices and immediately hand back control of the electronic system to the government.
On Monday, Pretoria High Court Judge Neil Tuchten ordered Tasima to immediately hand over the control of the e-Natis to the RTMC including all data necessary to operate the system.
The company is expected to vacate its premises in Midrand on Wednesday.
EWN reporter Barry Bateman unpacks the case.
The RTMC approached the High court to compel Tasima to abide by the Constitutional Court order. And the court ruled on the grounds that it is not the High Court’s position to amend the Constitutional Court order.— Barry Bateman, EWN reporter
He ordered the immediate hand over of Tasima to vacate the premises, handover all data and information and to do so immediately.— Barry Bateman, EWN reporter
If they don’t do it immediately, the RTMC is entitled to go get the sheriff and evict them.— Barry Bateman, EWN reporter
