State capture in South Africa was enabled by the appointment of unethical or incompetent people to lead key criminal justice agencies. Selecting new officials can prevent further damage. Legislative and policy changes are also needed so that police and prosecutors can dispense justice and be protected against attempts to subvert the rule of law.
This View on Africa is presented by Gareth Newham, Head of Justice and Violence Prevention, ISS Pretoria. He will discuss reforms that could improve public confidence in the criminal justice system and help prevent corruption.
