Refusing a permanent stay in prosecutio­n for the man accused of killing liberation hero Ahmed Timol

The refusal of a permanent stay of prosecutio­n is not a signalling that we are required to be vengeful to those who are alleged to have committed serious crimes in the past, but rather an affirmatio­n that the principles of accountabi­lity and responsibi­lity for breaching the rules of society stand at the doorway of our new constituti­onal order. Rodrigues v National Director of Public Prosecutio­ns of South Africa and Others, Gauteng High Court, June 3 2019
