MMC for Public Safety, Cllr Michael Sun confirms that Municipal Courts dealing with by-law infringements have been reintroduced in Johannesburg.

Municipal Courts deal mainly with the prosecution of traffic offences, and offences in terms of municipal by-laws, such as those for:
â€“ zoning and building
â€“ water pollution
â€“ waste management
â€“ informal trading
Most Municipal Courts are housed within the Magistratesâ€™ Court in that area. The National Department of Justice provides the magistrates for the Municipal Court.
