The CIC Julius Malema will appear in the Newcastle Magistrate Court on the matter brought against him by the HAWKS for contravening the Riotous Assemblies Act of 1956.
Twenty two years after democracy, the ANC government says the CIC Julius Malema has contravened this Act by saying to our people, on the occasion of the 61st Anniversary of the Freedom Charter, that they have the right to occupy land wherever they choose. This is a direct quotation from the Freedom Charter which states, “all shall have the right to occupy land wherever they choose”. In essence the CIC Julius Malema is charged for speaking about the Freedom Charter. The case will take place under the following details:
