JOHANNESBURG, April 11
JOHANNESBURG, April 11 (Reuters) - South African junior platinum mining firm Northam Platinum said on Thursday striking workers at its Zondereinde mine had ignored a court order to return to work.
The company said a labour court had declared the work stoppage illegal and the company saw the dismissal of the employees as a "last resort". (Reporting by Olivia Kumwenda; Editing by Jon Herskovitz)
