Quote of the week

As seductive as certain perspectives of international law may appear to those who disagree with the outcome of the interpretative exercise conducted by this Court in the contempt judgment, sight must not be lost of the proper place of international law, especially in respect of an application for rescission. The approach that my Brother adopts may be apposite in the context of an appeal, where a court is enjoined to consider whether the court a quo erred in its interpretation of the law. Although it should be clear by now, I shall repeat it once more: this is not an appeal, for this Court’s orders are not appealable. I am deeply concerned that seeking to rely on articles of the ICCPR as a basis for rescission constitutes nothing more than sophistry.

FNB hackers….

I received the following email on Friday that was clearly sent out by hackers trying to get your details:

Wachovia - Personal  Finance and Business Financial Services

FNB, Customers Care Center. 

If I was the paranoid type, I would wonder about the timing of this email, arriving on the same day that FNB decided to can their campaign against crime directed at President Mbeki. I am sure the National Intelligence Agency has better things to do, but this is the kind of stuff conspiracy theorists swoon about.

Wonder what Billy Masetla has been up to lately……?
