NATIONAL CONSUMER FORUM apply to Constitutional Court to act as amicus curiae in Collett matter

The NCF have applied to the Constitutional court to assist in the Collett v FRB matter.

While they had previously appealed to the SCA to assist with the matter they were denied. Now the NCF have applied for leave to act as amicus curiae for this case.

Who are the NCF you ask?:

1 The NCF is an individual membership, non-profit and autonomous organization that is dedicated to the protection and promotion of consumer rights and interests in South Africa. The NCF is an affiliate member of Consumers International (CI), a federation of over 250 consumer organizations in more than 120 countries.

2 The NCF works to assert and defend the rights of consumers as stated in the United Nations Guidelines for Consumer Protection of 1985 (and as amended in 1999). It educates consumers about their rights, lobbies on consumer issues, and speaks out where it can on a range of challenges that consumers – especially lower income earners – experience in their daily lives.

3 The aims of the NCF are to:
monitor and raise vital consumer issues; focus on the consumption of goods and services, their motives and consequences, and the consumers’ potential to positively influence them; inform, generate opinion and coordinate campaigns; and work to increase consumers’ influence on the market place.
