The news comes as AfriForum placed the EFF and Julius Malema on terms to pay a further R109 098,30 before this coming Friday for an outstanding court cost order. Should the money not be paid by then, AfriForum will start a process again to seize the EFF\u2019s assets. \n\n\n\nThe money pertains to the order as to costs which AfriForum obtained against the EFF and Malema on 14 November 2018 after the EFF and Malema\u2019s attempt to obtain an urgent court order \u2013 to prevent AfriForum from removing the EFF\u2019s property and auctioning it off \u2013 failed. This legal bill has since been taxed and therefore AfriForum can now enforce the payment thereof.\n\n\n\nThe order as to costs which AfriForum obtained on 18 November 2018 is one of five orders that the organisation has obtained against Malema and the EFF to date. Of the five cost orders Malema and the EFF have paid two, amounting to R235,000. With the payment of this enforceable third order two more orders will be outstanding. The enforcement of last mentioned is being held back because one must still be taxed and the EFF appealed against another one. It is estimated that the total of the five orders as to cost amounts to about R550,000.\n\n\n\nKallie Kriel, CEO of AfriForum, will apply Malema and the EFF\u2019s payments for court opposition against attempts to amend the country\u2019s Constitution to make expropriation without compensation possible.\n\n\n\nFighting Melama with his own money\n\n\n\n\u201cWe will fight Malema and the EFF with their own money,\u201d says Kriel.\n\n\n\nThe five cost orders in question stem from a court battle since March 2017, where AfriForum was granted an interdict with cost which prohibited them from inciting people to illegally occupy or trespass on land. The Northern Gauteng High Court granted AfriForum\u2019s interdict with cost. Malema and the EFF then brought an application to have the interdict set aside, which would have been heard on 12 September 2017. However, the court had to postpone the case after Malema and the EFF submitted their heads of argument in their own case too late. The judge subsequently granted a punitive cost order against Malema and the EFF. When the case resumed on 18 February 2018, Malema and the EFF\u2019s legal representatives failed to appear and the case was settled in AfriForum\u2019s favour and a further cost order issued against Malema and the EFF.\n\n\n\nOn 14 November 2018 the other two cost orders against Malema and the EFF were issued in AfriForum\u2019s favour in two separate cases in the Northern Gauteng High Court. The first order applies to a case of contempt of court, brought by AfriForum against Malema and the EFF, after Malema and the EFF continued to encourage land grabs despite a standing interdict that AfriForum had obtained to prohibit them from inciting people to occupy land. Malema and the EFF\u2019s legal team failed to submit their heads of argument in time, which means that the case will have to be heard at a later date. With this, the EFF and Malema incurred yet another cost order against them.\n\n\n\nIn the second case, the EFF and Malema attempted to obtain an urgent court order to prevent AfriForum from removing and selling the EFF\u2019s property at auction to recover legal costs. The court ruled that Malema and the EFF\u2019s case was not urgent and issued a fifth cost order against Malema and the EFF.
