Assistant Registrar of the High Court, Dumisani Basupi is fighting to stop the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) from making a recommendation for the President to dismiss him from work.

Basupi who was once a Magistrate in Hukuntsi had disciplinary proceedings instituted against her by the JSC after being found to have abused office and having lied under oath by the court.

The proceedings she wants to interdict emanated from civil proceedings instituted against him by Dumi Serole who had claimed that when Basupi was a magistrate he detained him unlawfully.  In his court appearance yesterday, Basupi through his lawyer Ofentse Khumomotse indicated that he seeks to interdict disciplinary proceedings against him levelled by the chairperson of the JSC.
