Harare - The Zimbabwean government has filed an urgent appeal against a South African Supreme Court of Appeal judgment giving former Zimbabwean white farmers the power to sell Zimbabwean government properties in Cape Town.
 
Attorney general Johannes Tomana told the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation that the government had filed an appeal to the Constitutional Court of South Africa to stop the sale of all Zimbabwean properties owned by government in South Africa.
 
"We have filed papers to challenge the ruling at the Northen Gauteng court that gives powers to attach and sell property in Cape Town," said Tomana.
 
He said the ruling to confisticate properties was based on a ruling of the now defunct Southern African Development Community Tribunal court, hence the South African court ruling in favour of the white farmers has no basis in the law of justice.
 
Tomana added that it is also strange for the South African court to go against the international law such as the Vienna Convention, which stipulates that properties owned by any government mission in a foreign country is immune from being sold or attached by another country.
