Judicial Complaints and Queries

Judges Matter is a coalition who monitor the judiciary and the judicial appointment process. As such, we are not an advice office and unfortunately, we cannot give advice or answer questions of substantive law.

If you have a complaint or query about a judge you must contact the Office of the Chief Justice directly. You can find out more about the judicial complaints process here: http://www.judiciary.org.za/complaint-process.html

We would suggest that you write a formal letter of complaint and submit it to the Office of the Chief Justice.

If you have a complaint or query about a magistrate you can contact the Magistrates Commission here: http://www.justice.gov.za/contact/cnt_mcomm.html
