Imtiaz Cajee, nephew of Ahmed Timol, described the ruling on the admission of the Timol family as a positive outcome.
Speaking outside the courtroom, Cajee said although the court dismissed an application by the other families to intervene, their objections would still be somehow represented by the Timol family.
“(The judge) made it very clear, that pertaining to the Timol family there has been an inquest, and there have been findings. It would not make sense for financial reasons to have all different parties represented in this matter.
“I think judge [Ramarumo] Monama has made it very clear that [in the case of] all other victims’ families, like the Simelane, the Haffejee and the Mabelane families, their plight is covered when he granted the Timol family the right to be the intervening party.”
