NO EVIDENCE. NO CASE. NO JUSTICE.
Justice for victims of gender-based violence has been impossible for almost a year!
Vital evidence used to convict perpetrators of GBV is blocked from entering courtrooms, because the SAPS system used to capture and track DNA evidence is switched off
The ever-increasing backlog in DNA processing has left survivors, especially those of rape, with little hope that justice will be served.
116 WOMEN ARE RAPED IN SOUTH AFRICA EVERY DAY
ONLY 9 OF THEIR ATTACKERS ARE EVER CONVICTED
GET THE SYSTEM SWITCHED BACK ON
Rapists and murderers are not being convicted. They have free reign.
They can walk past their victim’s houses without fear of repersecution… Because SAPS has crippled the DNA evidence system and can not convict them for their crimes.
Tens of thousands of victims of brutal crimes and their families are in the dark, with no idea if or when they will get the justice they deserve.
This is unacceptable!
