South Africa: Court Case 'Taxing' On Mos Def - Lawyer

Court Case Taxing On Mos Def LawyerMos Def's application for his family to stay in the country while he faces charges of contravening the Immigration Act will be decided on in two weeks.

Legal teams met in chambers at the Western Cape High Court on Tuesday, where the matter would be postponed, the artist's legal representative Shaheid Schrueder said.

An urgent application was filed for seven of the rapper's family members to stay in the country while he faces the charges.

Mos Def born Dante Terrell Smith and now known as Yasiin Bey was arrested last month after he attempted to leave Cape Town by producing an unrecognised "world passport".


About The Project

South Africa's conduct of international relations, especially its role in international organisations like the UN Security Council, its choice of strategic partnerships, its leadership role in Africa, its public engagement and foreign policy decision making, has been intensely debated in the recent past. The FPA programme aims to provide a nuanced analysis and facilitate a structured discussion of South Africa's foreign policy in a changing world environment for purposes of informing its future direction.

Aims and Objectives of The Project

The purpose of this focus area is to unpack the extent to which the policy in its making, its nature and its application constitutes a principled and pragmatic response to a complex international environment. In doing so, we hope to be guided by an objective to promote a foreign policy that positions SA as a responsible global citizen committed to building bridges between various power blocs for the benefit of Africa and South Africans.
