  • The South African law of lease and socioeconomic rights
    • Authors: Scott B. Droege, Michelle D. Lane, Maureen Casile
      Pages: 329 - 340
      Abstract: The South African law of lease, in particular the landlord-tenant regime, is currently under constitutional scrutiny. In several cases, the position of socioeconomically vulnerable tenants had to be considered. On the one hand, Section 26 of the 1996 Constitution of the Republic of South Africa provides that the state must afford access to adequate housing. On the other hand, landlords should be protected as rental housing forms a large portion of the South African housing market. To illustrate the two sides of the coin, two cases are discussed: the first case illustrates that unscrupulous landlords may, in respect of the common law duties of a landlord, be able to hide behind the constitutional duties of the state. The second case illustrates that the right of access to adequate housing should be incorporated into the relationship between a landlord and tenant. The concern is that if a landlord's right to dispose of his property as he wishes is continuously eroded by a tenant's right to access to adequate housing, the sustainability of the rental market will be affected.

  • Hostile takeovers in China: comparative corporate governance and
           institutional changes
    • Authors: Scott B. Droege, Michelle D. Lane, Maureen Casile
      Pages: 341 - 354
      Abstract: Hostile takeovers are yet to be a common practice for Chinese listed companies. As empirical evidence shows, the existence of hostile takeovers, which is an external governance mechanism, is vital for the remedy of the inefficient conglomerate strategy of Chinese listed companies. Along with the end of equity-division reform, the media has started to pay attention to the emergence of hostile takeovers in China. Through exploring the changes of ownership concentration of Chinese listed companies, it is concluded that hostile takeovers will be likely to spring up in the not-so-far future in China. However, in order to turn the emergence of hostile takeovers from a possibility to a reality and further to achieve their implications for the corporate governance of Chinese listed companies, Chinese legislators must impose limitations on the application of pre-tender-offer anti-takeover measures.

  • The pros and cons of National Health Insurance in South Africa
    • Authors: Scott B. Droege, Michelle D. Lane, Maureen Casile
      Pages: 355 - 368
      Abstract: This paper explores the debates about National Health Insurance. In addressing this issue the paper explores the constitutional obligation of South African Government regarding the provision of healthcare. The paper also analyses the pros and cons of the NHI in light of the millennium development goals. In its conclusion, the paper provides lessons that South Africa would have to consider as it proceeds with the implementation of the National Health Insurance.

  • Liberalisation of Foreign Investment Law in Indonesia
    • Authors: Scott B. Droege, Michelle D. Lane, Maureen Casile
      Pages: 369 - 382
      Abstract: The liberalisation of economy is the existing phenomenon affecting developed and developing countries. They have, to a greater extent, affected the international trade regulation and foreign investment. As a sovereign state, with its own economic system based on Article 33 of the 1945 Constitution and Pancasila, Indonesia must have to adopt itself to the era of globalisation and liberalisation in such a way that it may be able to partake in the global economy through the international trade and foreign investment. The research seeks to demonstrates, firstly, the globalisation and liberalisation of economy have increased the economic dependence through international trade and direct foreign investment. In addition, the economic liberalisation embodied in the WTO has substantial impact upon the investment regulation in Indonesia. The research also demonstrated that the economic globalisation and liberalisation are actually against the principle of economic democracy as contained in the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia.

  • White-collar crime lawyers: the case of Transocean in court
    • Authors: Scott B. Droege, Michelle D. Lane, Maureen Casile
      Pages: 383 - 394
      Abstract: White-collar criminals are persons of respectability and high social status, who commit financial crime in the course of their occupation. In a national sample of 305 convicted criminals, the average age was 48 years old, and the average sentence was 2.2 years in prison. White-collar crime lawyers defend criminals in court. The case of Transocean is presented in this article, where the company and their prosecuted advisors will probably spend about $10 million on lawyers in the first round in a district court. This emphasises a distinguishing feature of white-collar criminals from street criminals, where white-collar criminals can pay for a knowledgeable defence. Some criminals may have quite famous lawyers, who are well-known for getting their probably guilty clients off. A knowledge level perspective is applied in this paper, where the relative knowledge between defence and prosecution has an influence on how the case is handled and possibly even on the court verdict.

  • Building bridges: African customary family law and children's
           rights
    • Authors: Scott B. Droege, Michelle D. Lane, Maureen Casile
      Pages: 395 - 417
      Abstract: This paper will focus on the rights of the family, parental responsibilities and rights and children's rights in the context of African customary law. South Africa has gone a long way in safeguarding various rights of children in the Constitution and the principle of the paramountcy of the best interests of the child is firmly established. The main objective of this paper is to consider the impact of customary family law and practices on children's rights, and vice versa. This paper will furthermore embark on developing guidelines to balance fundamental rights while protecting the rights of children in Africa.

  • Theory versus policy in the reform of admiralty jurisdiction
    • Authors: Scott B. Droege, Michelle D. Lane, Maureen Casile
      Pages: 418 - 437
      Abstract: The enforcement of maritime claims in English admiralty law and jurisdiction is based on the action in rem and the action in personam. The nature of, and relationship between, these actions is traditionally explained on the basis of competing fictions and theories, in particular, the personification theory and the procedural theory, which lead to widely different results in the enforcement of maritime claims. In this respect, many Commonwealth jurisdictions have departed from English law. It is argued that the admiralty jurisdiction and law of Namibia is the same as English law as of 1890; and, in drafting new legislation to repeal and replace the law of 1890, the author contends that the legislation should reflect clear policy objectives and that the competing and unreliable fictions and theories should not serve as a basis for legislative reform. The draft legislation is then subjected to detailed analysis to determine that the policy objectives (serving the interests of both national and international litigants), are achieved.
