SAHRC Slams Police Brutality

The SAHRC says that police brutality is a serious problem in the country

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) says that police brutality is a serious problem in the country and the actions of the police officers allegedly involved in the killing of crime suspect Khulekani Mpanza in Krugersdorp two weeks ago highlights the long-term nature of this scourge.

Expressing its concern over yet another video depicting police brutality and human rights violations‚ the SAHRC warned that the Constitution protects the rights of every person‚ including criminal suspects who were presumed innocent until proven otherwise in a fair trial.

SAHRC spokesperson, Isaac Mangena, points out that the commission acknowledge that we are living in a society which prohibits the police from taking the law into their hands.
