The Beer Association of South Africa (Basa) has launched a review application in the North Gauteng High Court, in Pretoria, in terms of the Promotion of Administrative Justice Act (PAJA) and/or the principle of legality, for the previous alcohol bans imposed by government to be declared irrational, invalid and set aside. The application focuses on the decisions by the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs to enforce alcohol bans in July and December 2020, June 2021, as well as the decision to continue imposing further restrictions on the trade of liquor in and during July 2021.
