The City of Cape Town has obtained an urgent interdict in the High Court against the possible invasion of District Six restituted land.

The City says it has received information that a group of people intends to unlawfully occupy parts of the land.

It says the land is for members of the community that the apartheid government forcibly removed from the area.

The city fears that the occupation of the land will have an impact on the restitution process. It says the interim order prevents people from entering the properties, erecting structures and intimidating others.

The interdict gives law enforcement agencies the right to remove any person found to be in contravention of the order.
