The position in our law used to be that a foreigner (a peregrinus) who initiates proceedings in our courts must, as a general rule, provide security to the defendant for his costs, unless he has within the area of jurisdiction of the court immovable property with a sufficient margin unburdened to satisfy any costs that may arise (see Herbstein & Van Winsen The Civil Practice of the Supreme Court of South Africa (now the High Courts and the Supreme Court of Appeal) 4 ed (1997) by Louis de Villiers van Winsen, Andries Charl Cilliers & Cheryl Loots (edited by Mervyn Dendy) at 328).
