The Justice Alliance of South Africa (JASA) is a coalition of corporations, individuals and churches committed to upholding and fighting for justice and the highest moral standards in South African society.

Our Constitution provides that we should work through Parliament, the courts, the media and in any other proper way to achieve this end (download our Constitution).

Our office is in Cape Town which readily enables us to make submissions to Parliament on Bills passing through the legislature and to meet with Parliamentarians in groups and individually.

Wherever possible JASA is determined to assist Parliament by suggesting carefully drafted alternative or additional clauses rather than merely criticising Bills.

The 2016 JASA AGM was held on Thursday May 5th 2016 in Cape Town.
See here for Director's Annual Report 2015-16.

Closure of Western Cape Children's Homes: The Western Cape government’s appeal against JASA's successful High Court judgment ordering the re-opening of the homes was heard in the SCA on 17 May 2016. Judgment will be given at a date to be fixed.

ExposeIt: JASA launches new website and USSD platform for reporting Bribery and Corruption: After 7 months of planning and production the new website, now called ExposeIt, has gone live. Access the website at www.ExposeIt.org.za or dial *134*1105# on any mobile phone. Calls are free. The public are encouraged to report every suspicion of bribery or corruption by answering a few questions on the website or ticking boxes on the USSD platform.

JASA and Florence Mbombela, May 2016: The Western Cape High Court made a consent order requiring the City to survey the properties and pass title as soon as possible. In the event of the City not completing the process with all due expedition JASA has the right to return to Court on the same papers. JASA has continued to make every effort to obtain the title deeds for Mrs Mbombela’s Langa home; no one disputes she is entitled to them, but the City are still in the grip of nearly 20 years inertia. It now seems that yet again the City are dragging their heels and almost certainly we shall have to take them back to court in July.

See Current Cases for court papers and Media Release. Attorneys BBM Law and Advocate Melanie Holderness act for JASA and Florence Mbombela.

Top TV Porn: Latest news, 15 May 2015: ODM fined R25000 by Broadcasting Commission for broadcasting Porn over the Christmas period in breach of the High Court order. No Constitutional Court appeal. Broadcasting has stopped. Clean Sweep victory, and ODM pay all the costs of both sides.

See Current Cases for previous Media Releases and Judgment and Court Order.
Attorneys Norman, Wink and Stephens, and Advocate Darryl Cooke act for JASA.

Bill to protect children and women from internet and cell phone pornography: Following a long history which began in 2010 with Deputy Minister of Home Affairs, Malusi Gigaba, inviting JASA to draft a bill to curb internet porn, JASA has consulted over the last 3 years with Ministers Naledi Pando and Fatima Chohan. Minister Gigaba, who initiated this whole matter is now back at Home Affairs with Fatima Chohan continuing as Deputy, so we are pushing for a new initiative to take this matter forward. The need for it becomes more urgent everyday as the world wakes up to the havoc, often addiction, which internet porn is causing. See for example "The Porn Trap" published by Harper Collins and available on Kindle.

Psychologists and their patients suffering discrimination: This important case, in which JASA represents 600 psychologists in a group known as ReLPAG, at last reached Court on April 21 2016 but was postponed on the Judge’s suggestion to give the parties time to make settlement proposals. JASA and their co-applicant Ottery Home have put forward proposals but as of May 17 have heard nothing back from the Minister and HPCSA.

See Current Cases for recent Supplementary Affidavit and previous papers filed in the Western Cape High Court and related JASA Media Release.
Attorneys A Batchelor & Associates and Advocates Darryl Cooke and Gavin Brown act for JASA and ReLPAG.

Marie Stopes: JASA is currently advising Nathalie Barden who had an extremely unpleasant experience at Marie Stopes clinic in Cape Town on 14th and 15th October 2013. Zeenat Pillay, who brought a claim in the High Court for damages against the same clinic arising out of failure to counsel her before her abortion, and medical negligence during the procedure, has had her claim settled to her satisfaction by the clinic.
