At the po­lice sta­tion

Daily Dispatch - - News -

Ac­cord­ing to Ko­mani po­lice spokesper­son cap­tain Namhla Mdle­leni when a rape case is re­ported the po­lice take state­ments and send the vic­tim to the cri­sis cen­tre, where the tests are done.

“At the cri­sis cen­tre there are ex­perts who will de­ter­mine whether the vic­tim has been raped or not, and if they con­firm that the vic­tim was raped, the po­lice will open a case and in­ves­ti­gate,” she said.

Mdle­leni said in many cases the vic­tims didn’t know the sus­pects.

“When the sus­pect is ar­rested, our in­ves­ti­ga­tors send the dock­ets to the pros­e­cu­tor for prose­cu­tion,” Mdle­leni said.
