Reply:

(1)(a)(b) Designated Police Officers (DPOs) are appointed at police stations, to conduct compliance inspections in terms of the Second-Hand Goods Act, 2009 (Act No 6 of 2009). This includes registered second-hand goods stores and scrap metal dealers. However, at most police stations, the appointed DPO is also responsible to conduct compliance inspections, in respect of the firearm and liquor environments.

As part of the compliance inspection, all records maintained by the registered second-hand goods dealer, are checked by the DPO to ensure that they are taking identity document numbers. The compliance inspection includes the verification of copies of the applicable official document, as proof of the identity of the person, who either acquired or disposed of goods, as prescribed in Sections 21(4) and (5) of the Second- Hand Goods Act. The proof of identity can be a temporary South African identity certificate, a South African identity document, a valid current passport or a valid current South African driving licence.

(1) Whether the Civilian Secretariat for Police has completed the revised Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID} Bill; if so, on what date will it be presented to the Portfolio Committee on Police; (2) whether the specified Bill has been sent to the Cabinet for approval; if so, on what date; (3) whether the Bill has been approved by Cabinet; if not, on what date can approval be expected; if so, what are the relevant details; (4) has the Bill been given to the Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Police; (5) why was the specified committee put in a position of creating a Committee Bill in order to comply with the Constitutional Court ruling in the case of McBride v Minister of Police and Another (CCT255/15) [2016]? NW2415E

Reply:

(1) The revised draft Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID} Amendment Bill has been completed. The draft, Bill will initially be submitted to the Minister in order to obtain approval to process it through the various Justice, Crime Prevention and Security working group.

(2) The draft Bill has not yet been processed to Cabinet. The Department needs to obtain approval to process it through the V\lrious Justice, Crime Prevention and Security (JCPS) working group.

(3) The Constitutional Court ordered Parliament to correct the defects in the IPID Act, 2011 within 24 months from the date of the order which was handed on the 6th

FOR WRITTEN REPLY: QUESTION 2241: DATE OF PUBLICATION IN INTERNAL QUESTION PAPER: 17 AUGUST

2018: (INTERNAL QUESTION PAPER NO 23-2018)

September 2016. The process by the Department to draft the amendments to the Act commenced in February 2017. However, taking into account the finding made by both the High and the Constitutional Court relating to the operational structural independence of the IPID, the process of amending the IPID Act, 2011 was extended to other provisions of the Act. This process took longer than anticipated.

As a result, and taking into consideration the timeframes set by the Constitutional Court, the Portfolio Committee suggested that a draft Bill which focused solely on the Constitutional Court Judgment, should be processed as a Committee Bill.

(4) After the first briefing of the Committee Bill by the Parliamentary Legal Adviser, a copy of the draft Bill that was drafted by the Department was made available to the Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Police.

(a) What is the status of the investigation into the death of a certain person (name and details furnished) and (b) who is the investigating officer?

Reply:

a) Regarding the investigation into the matter that has been referred to the South African Police Service (SAPS) by the Honourable Member, fingerprints, which were found on the vehicle, have not yet been linked to anyone on the Automatic Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS). In addition, the recovered cartridges have also not been linked on the Integrated Ballistic Identification System (IBIS). They have, however, been stored on the IBIS’s latent system. The IBIS will automatically respond in the event of a match being made. Comprehensive investigative strategies have been applied through the use of Section 205 of the Criminal Procedure Act, 1977 (Act No 51 of 1977). Information has been received from members of the community, family members and other sources. Follow-ups have been made throughout the country but nothing of evidential value, which links to the case, has surfaced. Various informers and sources have been utilised and tasked to assist with the gathering of information. The case is still active and is receiving the required attention.

b) The particulars of the investigating officer cannot be disclosed to ensure that the case is investigated without fear or favour.

Reply:

(1)(a) The two (2) case dockets (Worcester CAS 259/10/2015 and 261/10/2015) were submitted to the Senior Public Prosecutor on several occasions and received back with guidance on further investigations to be conducted. The last date that the case dockets were received back was on 5 September 2018 and the Investigating Officer is busy dealing with instructions issued by the Senior Public Prosecutor.

(1)(b) The Ombudsman on Policing in the Western Cape reports to the Provincial Government and not to the South African Police Service. This office can therefore not respond to this question.

(1)(c) The complexity of these cases vastly differ from one to the other and therefore a standard acceptable timeframe cannot be determined.

(2) This office has found that the delay is not intentional. The case was nolle prosequi and was only re-opened by the police after the complainant approached the NPA seeking clarity.

(2) Whether, with regard to the costs incurred by his department as results of the former Minister's alleged unlawful actions, there are any plans for the former Minister to face any consequences, including legal or financially reparatory consequences; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. The total cost paid on legal fees, towards the Constitutional McBride v Minister of Police and Another (CCT255/15) Department: Civilian Secretariat for Police Service is R 9 041 232.47

In the matter of McBride v Minister of Police, the Minister has been cited in his official capacity. Even though cost orders have been given against public officials who have been deemed to have acted mala fide (bad faith), in this matter both the High Court and the Constitutional Court did not order the

Minister to pay the costs of the proceedings de bonis propiis (out of his own pocket).

3. So there are no plans for the former Minister to face any consequences, including legal or financially reparatory consequences

Reply:

(a) The total number of firearms that are currently registered in the Central Firearm Register (CFR), is 5 567 706.

(b)(i) to (v) The requested data is not available for the period, 1994 to 2002. Prior to 1994, South Africa was divided into different states, namely South Africa, Transkei, Bophuthatswana, Venda and Ciskei. All these territories had their own separate firearm registration systems. In South Africa, the firearm licencing process was the responsibility of the Department of Home Affairs (DHA), up until 1994.

After the assumption of the firearm licencing process, by the South African Police Service (SAPS), in 1994, a new system called the Firearm Register System, was introduced. However, information received from the DHA was in a form of a spreadsheet, called a "data dump" and there was no application linked to a specific firearm. Therefore, the current Enhanced Firearm Register System (EFRS), does not contain records for the period, 1994 to 2002.

(b)(vi) The total number of firearms that were registered in the CFR, as at 31 December 2004, was 3 237 987.

(b)(vii) The total number of firearms that were registered in the CFR, as at 31 December 2006, was 3 352 728.
