AfriForum's urgent application to interdict the adoption of the Constitutional Review Committee's first report into land expropriation without compensation has been dismissed.

The second part of AfriForum's application - to have the public participation process reviewed will be heard at a later date in court.

This means the debate on the report will go ahead on Tuesday in the National Assembly, where it will be put for adoption.
