Protestors who have been camping outside the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Pretoria say police because must bring coffins if they try to break up their month-long action.
As the urgent action seeking to remove them stretches into a third day in the Pretoria High Court, the refugees insist they are not going anywhere.
Refugee leader Aline Bukuru says they are ready for any court judgment.
“We would die here and the world would see the UNHCR is not prepared to protest us,# she said
She was in the Pretoria High Court where the Home Affairs Department and South African Police Service have asked to be heard on problems they have with demands by the residents of Brooklyn and Waterkloof.
Judge Natvarlal Ranchod has stood the matter over for another day to allow them to prepare documents.
The refugees are not represented in court.
