concourtBusinessLive reports that the Constitutional Court hearing on former deputy pension funds registrar Rosemary Hunter’s battle for a review of the Financial Services Board’s (FSB’s) dormant retirement-fund cancellations project concluded on Tuesday.  

Hunter asked the court for leave to appeal against an earlier judgment of the High Court in Pretoria, which dismissed her application to obtain a wider investigation into the cancellations project, with the investigator reporting to the court.  Hunter had also sought to compel the Minister of Finance to look into two notices of noncompliance against FSB head Dube Tshidi.  Counsel for Hunter, Tshidi, Hunter’s predecessor Jurgen Boyd and the minister each had a short time to plead over one day before the Constitutional Court in regard to whether Hunter should be granted leave to appeal.  "It is very hard to tell at this stage [how the Constitutional Court will rule]," Hunter commented on Tuesday.  "We will be in a position to comment only once the court has taken a decision on the matter," said FSB spokesman Tembisa Marele.  This report goes on to detail the complex background to this dispute.
