In a reserved judgment handed down on 2 August 2006 (Khan & Others v Minister of Home Affairs & Others (T) case 15303/06 unreported) the court considered aspects of the process employed by the Department of Home Affairs to enforce the Immigration Act 13 of 2002, and, more particularly, to deport 'illegal foreigners'. The case arose from the much-publicised arrest of a number of persons by Home Affairs officials outside the Pretoria High Court, who had gone there to watch proceedings in the so-called 'Rashid' matter.
