The question was asked by Van der Linde J in Lodestone Investments (Pty) Ltd against Muhammad Ebrahim t/a Ndimoyo Transport GLD Case No. 5716/2016 (29 April 2016) and National Youth Development Agency v Dual Point Consulting (Pty) Ltd and Another (06982/2016)  ZAGPJHC 114 (19 May 2016). In both cases, the court refused to rule on the case. However, in Dual Point Consulting, the court outlined important considerations: However, it is more likely that you negotiated a detailed transaction contract to eliminate the debt. For more information on the various forms of documentation of a settlement, see the practical note: dispute resolution – documenting a settlement. If a person invoices the applicant in such a way that the person`s claim against the other criminals is respected, the applicant can claim contributions against the other criminals, provided that the transaction has been informed to the court that the transaction has been appropriate. If the court finds that the amount is excessive, it can determine the amount by which the fee should have been paid. Cameron and Froneman J. were particularly abhorrent in their derogatory judgment in their assessment of the transaction agreement: if a party votes without a court order because it is outside the jurisdiction of the courts or because it has agreed otherwise, the proceedings may be closed on the basis of the settlement agreement. The Tribunal found that the tradition of decision-making in court decisions was strong in our legal system, but that a court should not act mechanically to make a settlement agreement a court order. A court can only make a decision that is “competent and fair” and complies with the Constitution and the law and which, as such, must first and foremost relate directly or indirectly to the issues between the parties and which, moreover, cannot be challenged, both from a legal and a practical point of view, that its conditions must be in accordance with the Constitution and the law.
