Abstract

The primary procedural safeguards in South African administrative law are expressed by the twin principles of natural justice: audi alteram partem (“the audi principle”) and nemo iudex in causa sua that is, that a public official should hear the other side, and that one should not be a judge in his own cause. As a general rule it may be said that the principle of natural justice apply whenever an administrative act is quasi-judicial. An administrative act was considered to be quasi-judicial if it affects the rights, liberties (and perhaps, the privileges) of an individual.
