Shembeni, Mr HA to ask the Minister of Police
What measures has he put in place to ensure that there is no overcrowding of police cells by arrests conducted by the police during the national lockdown period to fight the spread of the coronavirus?
There is no overcrowding in police cells because of arrests conducted by the South African Police Service (SAPS), during the national lockdown period. Most o1the people who violate the Regulations of the Disaster Management Act, are released on a warning to appear in court (SAPS 496) and issued a J534 (admission of guilt fine) or given a J368 (police bail).
