Submission on Debt Collectors Amendment Bill

15 February 2016 No Comment


In October of last year the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development published a draft Debt Collectors Amendment Bill. The main amendment to the Debt Collectors Act was the proposed inclusion of attorneys into the ambit of the Act.

As I had not seen any research or motivation in this regard I wrote to the Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development, Mr J Jeffery to ask what the motivation was and he was kind enough to take the time out of his busy schedule to reply (a copy of the letter is here).

The  Department of Justice and Constitutional Development call for comments on the Bill was extended to the 31 January 2016 and I made the following submission on the Bill. I trust and hope the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development will care considering the points back in this and the other submissions before proceeding with any proposed amendments.
