Quote of the week

The recommendation for criminal charges is particularly applicable to Mr Anoj Singh and Mr Koko, who by false pretences led Eskom, through the officials who processed the R659 million payment, to believe that the R659 million payment was in the nature of pre-payment for coal, as was the R1.68 billion pre-payment, later converted into a guarantee, when in truth and fact they knew that the prepayment and the guarantee were needed to enable the Guptas to complete and save the sale of share transaction.

Now Sweden to get same-sex marriage?

In Sweden, the special commissioner for consideration of the possibility of making marriage available to same-sex couples presented his report to the Minister for Justice 21 March 2007. The report contains proposals for a draft bill amending the Swedish Marriage Code, making it gender neutral. In his report the commissioner also proposes the repeal of the Swedish Registered Partnership Act. Registered partnerships that have not been dissolved at the time of entry into force of the amended Marriage Code would take effect as marriages. Representatives of religious communities would have the legal capacity but not the obligation to perform marriages irrespective of the gender of the future spouses. The amendments are proposed to take legal effect 1 January 2008.
