The fight for the Scorpions is far from over media statement by the UDM President (28 May 2008)

We take note of the judgement handed down in the Pretoria High Court regarding Mr Glenister's attempt to prevent Government from initiating legislation to disband the Scorpions.

We will consult with our legal team as well as our colleagues from the other political parties who jointly participated in this case. The Judge did not dismiss the merits of our argument. If indeed it is a question of jurisdiction then the UDM is of the opinion that it should be taken to a higher court that does have jurisdiction.

In the meanwhile we will pursue every other parliamentary and legal avenue open to us to halt this madness of the ANC. The fight for the Scorpions is far from over.
