SERI has filed its heads of argument as amicus curiae in an appeal to be heard in the SCA on 22 August 2013. The case concerns the correct interpretation of the decision of the Constitutional Court in Sebola (see here for more on this case). SERI argues that the lower court decision that the Sebola decision precluded it from granting the applications for default judgment, was correct. On the facts it was clear that the section 129(1)(a) notices required in terms of the National Credit Act 34 of 2005 did not reach the respondents.
