FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA, 27 NOVEMBER 2019
On Friday 29 November 2019, the Supreme Court of Kenya will rule on ISLA’s amicus curiae application. The earlier Court ruled that once judgment is issued, a court is functus officio and accordingly structural interdicts post judgment are not appropriate orders. ISLA’s intervention seeks to assist the Supreme Court in giving meaning to the right to remedy. The submissions aim to provide guidance on the legal basis for remedies in rights violation cases and the use of structural interdicts. This legal intervention is necessary as the right to remedy is crucial to creating an enabling environment for strategic litigation.
