Legal Resources Centre and Richard Spoor Attorneys Statement on police response to Amadiba Cri­sis Com­mit­tee mur­der

Author: Legal Resources Centre , Published on: 29 March 2016

The LRC and Richard Spoor Attor­neys, who have offered assis­tance to the fam­ily of Sikhosiphi “Bazooka” Rhadebe, mur­dered chair­per­son of the Amadiba Cri­sis Com­mit­tee (ACC), are deeply con­cerned about the response of the South African Police Ser­vices (SAPS) to the inves­ti­ga­tion sur­round­ing his death...We do not believe that the SAPS is pro­vid­ing ade­quate resources to the inves­ti­ga­tion...The LRC and Richard Spoor Attor­neys would like to stress that a com­pre­hen­sive, inde­pen­dent inves­ti­ga­tion that ensures jus­tice for Mr Rhadebe’s death is required. This requires the proper pro­cess­ing of the crime scene and the hijacked vehi­cle. The fam­ily must be allowed to par­tic­i­pate in and mon­i­tor the process...A struc­tured approach to com­mu­nity secu­rity and safety must be based on an assess­ment of the risks and trig­gers for irra­tional vio­lent actions by, or organ­ised by, those who have much to gain if demo­c­ra­tic wishes are ignored and dis­re­spected. A ded­i­cated inves­ti­ga­tion into the mur­der is a nec­es­sary part of this process.
