Open letter to South Africa’s students‚ universities and government‚ represented by Minister in the .
Reports of a 56 percent in the number of missing police dockets in the past year are cause for alarm.
This much stems from the reply to a question posed by the Democratic Alliance in Parliament last week.
This shocking revelation is a major blow not only to the national campaign to reduce the high crime rate but the smooth administration of the criminal justice system.
A few years ago, the public was assured by the government that the menace of missing dockets had been nipped in the bud with the advent of a computer technology that would keep electronic record of criminal cases.
We concur with the DA that this situation suggests a major crisis within the police force.
