Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) Co-chairpersons, Busani Mabunda and Richard Scott, joined a number of other observers at the Maseru High Court on 2December 2015, in solidarity with Lesotho practitioners who had reported threats and harassment against themselves and their clients, being Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) soldiers who were alleged to have mutinied earlier in 2015. The LSSA was informed by the Law Society of Lesotho that defence lawyers had been experiencing threats to themselves and their families, court orders had been ignored and judges intimidated. Lawyers had also been denied access to their clients.
