SALRC refutes claims of proposed cancellation of religious holidays
The South African Law Reform Commission (SALRC) has noted with great concern a report that appeared on a copy of The Herald on 27 May 2015, under the headline: Last chance to save Easter and Christmas holidays.

The report creates an impression that the SALRC has recommended the cancellation of the two religious holidays, Christmas and Good Friday, as paid holidays from the SA calendar. This is incorrect and the SALRC would like to request that the matter be captured correctly.
