The Transport Department has welcomed the court’s judgement suspending warrants of execution and attachments against the RAF, to provide some form of financial relief.
The government took to Twitter on Tuesday, 13 April 2021, to circulate a statement confirming the Department of Transport’s endorsement of the Road Accident Fund’s (RAF) latest legal victory. The RAF had applied at the Pretoria High Court to have warrants of execution and attachments against it suspended, which the court ruled in favour of.
According to the statement, “In handing down its judgement, the court ruled that, amongst others:
“All writs of execution and attachments against the RAF based on court orders already granted or settlements already reached in terms of the Road Accident Fund Act, 56 of 1996 are suspended until 30 April 2021.
“Those that are not older than 180 days as from the date of the court order or date of the settlement reached, are suspended from 1 May 2021 until 12 September 2021.”
The statement concluded by detailing the reason for the application, stating, “This is an important step in placing the RAF on a sustainable path and ensure that it is able to provide the much-needed relief to those who need such relief as a consequence of the position they find themselves in due to road accidents.”
