The South African Human Rights Commission expresses concern about reports of police torture

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has expressed concern about reports of police torture.

SAHRC spokesperson, Vincent Moaga, points out that, “The commission is urging the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development to fast-track the combating of torture bill.”

Moaga states that the act of torture is not a recognised statutory crime in South Africa, adding that the torture legislation is needed so that the criminal justice system can deal more effectively with acts of torture.
