Police say they are winning the fight against crime, but opposition parties have again called into question their performance and the way they produce statistics.

Police say they are winning the fight against crime, but opposition parties have again called into question their performance and the way they produce statistics.

National Police Commissioner Jackie Selebi yesterday praised the work of the police over the last year, but the Democratic Alliance's Dianne Kohler Barnard raised question marks about the way the police assess performance. Selebi was commenting yesterday after the release in parliament of the 2006/2007 annual report of the SAPS.

However, Kohler Barnard said she would pose questions to Safety and Security Minister Charles Nqakula on the matter. - Sapa and Waghied Misbach
