Case Example – 03

A man is accused of having raped his daughters and grandson. The client that approached Isibani alleges that her father who raped her when she was 11, also raped her younger sister who was 12 years when he started. She also alleges that her father raped her 4 year old son.

He was arrested and kept in custody for a few months. At the end of it, the prosecutors just dropped the case without any justification despite the presence of expert medical evidence.

Isibani is in the process of compelling the prosecutors to explain why this matter was dropped without any explanation and a rapist released back into the public.

Expert advice from a Durban based Advocate, who specializes in constitutional law, has been sought on how to proceed with this case.
