Sheriff did not issue notices

Shafiek Ismail, sheriff Kuils River North

Referring to an article in the Northern News called “Rental Woes” on July 10.

I am the sheriff for Kuils River North.

The area in question, the block of flats in Long Street, is my service area.

You say the sheriff issued eviction notices on July 4.

The sheriff cannot issue documents, only the magistrates can issue documents.

We serve or execute court processes.

As a matter of fact, this office had nothing to do with service of eviction notices on July 4 at Sunset Village in Scottsdene.
