Kohler-Barnard, Ms D to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services
Why was CAS 115/08/2015 that was opened at the Port Shepstone Police Station closed by the National Prosecuting Authority?
The National Prosecuting Authority has informed me that the case opened at the Port Shepstone Police Station with case no. CAS 115/08/2015 has not been closed. The matter is still under investigation. The delay in finalising the investigation is due to the outstanding DNA results.
Additionally, the DNA samples had to be submitted because no DNA test was initially conducted on the deceased using a sample taken from the deceased’s son for comparison.
