Municipal courts launching in Johannesburg

Seven Municipal Courts to be Established in Joburg by the End of March

Municipal Courts deal mainly with the prosecution of traffic offences, and offences in terms of municipal by-laws, such as those for:
– zoning and building
– water pollution
– waste management
– fireworks
– informal trading
– parking
Most Municipal Courts are housed within the Magistrates’ Court in that area. The National Department of Justice provides the magistrates for the Municipal Court.
