SA Criticises HRW Report on Policing

The Ministry of Police says the Human Rights Watch report is ‘generalising and subjective’ in its assessment of the police

The Ministry of Police says the Human Rights Watch's (HRW) 2014 World Report is ‘generalising and subjective’ in its assessment of the police.

In the report, HRW says: "Serious concerns remain about the ongoing conduct and capacity of the South African Police Service, both in terms of the use of force in general, as well as the ability to deal with riots in a rights-respecting manner."

Police Minister, Nathi Mthethwa's spokesperson, Zweli Mnisi, says the report created the impression that the police used the same approach and operational plan for all for public protests, and created the impression that all police were brutal.
