The judgment reads, “The applicant(Maswabi) ‘s passport shall remain in the custody of the state. The applicant shall not have access to the passport for a period of three months from the date of this order to enable the state to make progress in investigating this matter and the state shall release the applicant’s passport to her at the expiry of the three (3) months.”
