5:11 pm
one of the things in south africa at the moment is less than 6% of perpetrators in facing any sort of criminal charges, so harsher penalties would mean conviction rates for all perpetrators of gender-based violence, and sentences that are quite comparative to the crime itself. at the moment, the rates are so low that it is not a deterrent at all. even that would be something that could be one of the positive things that could come out of this. anchor: how would you describe the way in which please handle such cases in the event they are actually reported? it has been a challenge with our legal system. it is one of the areas recognized as quite weak, and sometimes by the police themselves.
