No more time limits on rape prosecution

VAAL TRIANGLE - The National Assembly on Tuesday passed new legislative amendments, which would see an end to the 20-year time limit to prosecute rape and other serious crimes. These crimes include rape, compelled rape, murder and robbery with aggravating circumstances, and some other crimes. Political parties unanimously supported the amendment. Cabinet stated the proposed amendments would give the National Prosecution Authority wider discretion to prosecute sexual offenses committed even 20 years earlier.
