Periodical:South African Human Rights and Labour Law Yearbook
Geographic term:South Africa
Subject:state of emergency
Abstract:Emergency rule as prescribed by South Africa's Public Safety Act of 1953 is, in theory, a temporary measure. However, it has applied continuously and generally since 12 June 1986. The fourth consecutive state of emergency was declared on 9 June 1989. This article first summarizes the emergency regulations of the third state of emergency, promulgated on 10 June 1988: security emergency regulations, prison emergency regulations, media emergency regulations, and educational institutions regulations. Then it deals shortly with the regulations promulgated in June 1989, the year in which F.W. De Klerk succeeded P.W. Botha, and the year of the hunger campaign and the defiance campaign. Finally, it analyses a few Appellate Division judgments relating to the emergency. Notes, ref.
