6th World Sheriffs Day

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

The South African Board for Sheriffs will celebrate the 6th World Sheriffs Day, an international event that is organised by the International Union of Judicial Officers (UIHJ), on 6 June 2013.

The theme for this year is “The Sheriff: Legal interface between litigants”. The topic will be an opportunity to show the public that the sheriff is a true vector of communication between litigants, creditors and debtors, and also between the government and litigants.

The day is intended to bring recognition to the Sheriffs profession and raise awareness and understanding to the public about the role of the Sheriff. The work of the sheriff is still unknown to the general public and the Board would like to use this month of June to engage with the communities and try to change the negative perceptions towards the profession.

The Board would like to encourage all Sheriffs to participate and celebrate the World Sheriffs day in their various districts by:

  • Serving documents free of charge or at a half price.
  • Host soup kitchens.
  • Visit the Magistrate Courts and hand out pamphlets. (Who is the Sheriffs and Myths and Facts)

We will be most grateful to you if you can participate and use your imagination to promote your office and the profession during the said week. You can record your involvement by taking photographs and writing a short report. Please request information brochures from our office in the languages that you require for your specific areas.

Please contact Nikiwe Vuba on 021-462 3209 or nikiwe@sheriffs.org.za if you would require the SABFS to assist in anyway.

PROTECTION FROM HARASSMENT ACT

Friday, April 26, 2013

On 2 December 2011 the President of South Africa, Mr. JG Zuma (MP), signed the Protection of Harassment Act, 17 of 2011 (the Harassment Act) into law. The Harassment Act will come into operation on 27 April 2013, our national Freedom Day. Freedom Day marks the liberation of our country and its people from a long period of oppression by minority rule through the relentless efforts of those who fought for our liberation who had to endure imprisonment, harassment and death by the apartheid-era government. It also signifies the date on which all persons in South Africa irrespective of race and/or creed cast their vote in the first democratic election in the country on 27 April 1994, to afford us the freedoms that we enjoy today. However, today we have violence, perpetrated by the hands of persons known to victims of crime.
