By Safiyia Stanfley, MPL, DA Provincial Spokesperson on Gender, Youth & Persons with Disabilities:
The Democratic Alliance notes the court appearance tomorrow of the four boys who are charged with a criminal assault on a fellow pupil at the Hoër Landbouskool in Jan Kempdorp.
We hope that there will be no further postponements.
We want to see that the police investigation is complete and that the court sets a trial date. The case has already dragged out in the courts since February.
Justice must be done, for the sake of the victim and for the sake of the community.
We hope that there will be a fair trial and that the matter will come to a quick resolution.
