Court dismisses NEASA’s application for leave to appeal with cost

An application for leave to appeal must convince the Court, on proper grounds, that there is a reasonable prospect or realistic chance of success on appeal.

Having considered the merits, Judge Snyman concluded that there is no reasonable prospect that another Court could come to a different conclusion. Disagreeing with an outcome, Judge Snyman ruled, does not on its own establish prospects of success on appeal.

The events on the day and more specifically the conduct of the President at the Council Meeting, where the agreements were being processed for submission to the Department of Employment and Labour were “clearly motivated by ulterior considerations in pursuit of NEASA’s own objectives.”

Judge Snyman concludes, “I am not satisfied that the applicants have demonstrated any prospects of success on appeal.”

The judgement concludes with Judge Snyman confirming:

“The applicants have shown no reasonable prospect that another Court would come to a different conclusion, and that the applicants thus have little prospects of success on appeal. The application for leave to appeal falls to be dismissed.”

The application, following the same approach as in the original judgement, is dismissed with costs.
