CASAC’s Open Letter to Simelane

CASAC has written an open letter to the national director of public prosecutions expressing its ‘grave concern’ about his decision to prosecute the female learner in the Jules High School sexual offences matter

The Council for the Advancement of South African Constitution (CASAC) has written an open letter to the national director of public prosecutions (NPA), Menzi Simelane, expressing its ‘grave concern’ about his decision to prosecute the female learner in the Jules High School sexual offences matter.

SASAC executive secretary, Lawson Naidoo, is of the view that the constitutional right of the female learner will be violated in the event of her being prosecuted.

Naidoo has urged the NPA to reconsider its decision, and to ensure that the appropriate steps are taken to protect this girl from further harm, while it reviews not just her prosecution but the policy in relations to such prosecutions.
