What was the conviction rate for corruption in the period 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2018?

Reply:

According to the Head of the National Prosecutions Service, although the National Prosecuting Authority does not keep data according to specific crime typologies due to lack of electronic systems, it does record information related to corruption in respect to persons who have been convicted or acquitted. Unlike the normal calculation of conviction rates based on cases, the conviction rate is measured on the number of persons. 

Therefore, the 2018 convictions, acquittals and percentages are indicated in the table below:

What was the conviction rate for gang-related offences in each province in each of the past two financial years?

Reply:

I am informed by the National Prosecuting Authority that the regions only started to track and report on what is called gang-related offences during the 2018/19 financial year. It is important to note that there is no such crime or charge in our law. Therefore, statistics in this regard are not automatically tracked and recorded in the system.

Gang related offences are mostly prevalent in the Western and Eastern Cape Divisions.

During this financial year (April 2018 – February 2019), these two regions indicated that 87 verdict cases were finalised, obtaining 65 convictions. This therefore represents a conviction rate of 74.7%.

Whether his department has engaged with the Department of Public Works at any time during the past five financial years up to the latest specified date for which information is available with regard to the severe lack of maintenance at the Klerksdorp Magistrates Court which is housed at the PC Pelser Building in the Matlosana Local Municipality; if not, why not; if so, for each engagement with Public Works, (a) what issues were brought to the attention of the Department of Public Works, (b) what undertakings were made, (c) what actions followed and (d) what is the current status of each issue identified; (2) what is the annual rent payable to the Department of Public Works for the tenancy of the Klerksdorp Magistrates Court for the past five financial years up to the latest specified date for which information is available; (3) whether he has been informed of the dilapidated, unhygienic and unsafe status of the PC Pelser Building; if not, will he investigate the matter; if so, what steps will he take to ensure that the building adheres to the stipulations of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Act 85 of 1993, in order to ensure an environment conducive to the administration of justice?

Reply:

1. The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development (DoJ&CD) has indeed engaged with the Department of Public Works (DPW) on various occasions, during the past five (5) financial years, in respect to the severe lack of maintenance at the Klerksdorp Magistrates Court housed at the PC Pelser Building.

(a) Major challenges relate to malfunctioning lifts, aircons (HVAC, heating, ventilation and cooling system), constant tripping of power and plumbing.

(b) The Mafikeng Regional office of the Department of Public Works will, after receiving the call log, appoint contractors to attend to the incidents at the court. With regards to the HVAC and electricity challenges, DPW undertook to appoint a contractor for major repairs and refurbishments of both services. DPW further undertook to replace the lifts.

(c) In June 2014, the Mafikeng Regional office of Department of Public Works appointed Sebushi Somo Construction and Projects to execute a repair electrical reticulation and mechanical installation project to the value of R39 500 000. This project was for the rewiring and upgrading of the electricity, and for the installation and reticulation of new HVAC system.

Regarding the lifts, there was a project that was on site from 14 September 2016 to 02 October 2017, this was a maintenance project of lifts in the North West. DPW Regional Office used this short term contract to service the lifts of the Court. Since its expiry, it has been a challenge for the lifts to be serviced to a point where the Department of Labour has now issued a contravention notice. The internal Engineers of DPW have recommended that all lifts be replaced since they have reached their life span. Given that the processes of replacing the lifts will take longer, DPW opted to run two processes where a service provider will be appointed to, in the interim, fix the lifts and also appoint Engineers to start with the planning for the major project of replacing the lifts.

A plumbing project will be registered by DPW to attend to all challenges of blocked sewerage pipes and toilets, as well as leaking reticulation pipes.

(d) The contractor for the electrical reticulation and mechanical installation is still on site working on the electricity and HVAC systems.

A service provider has since been appointed by DPW to repair lifts in the short term whilst a project to replace all lifts is being registered as a long term solution. An advert has been placed by DPW for the appointment of the Engineers for the long term solution of replacing the lifts. These Engineers will then start with the planning and design of the project in the 2019/20 financial year.

A separate project, relating to all the plumbing challenges at the Court including the basement water spring, is being registered by DPW for planning in the 2019/20 financial year.

2. The PC Pelser Building is a state owned building, and therefore the DoJ&CD pays what is referred to as accommodation charges from the devolved budget. The DoJ&CD is paying DPW accommodation charges on quarterly basis an amount in the tune of approximately R92 million without any breakdown per property from DPW as per Devolution of Budget Framework of 2006. National Treasury has given DPW an exemption to invoice client departments on accommodation charges without supporting documents because DPW has not yet finalised government immovable asset register. The quarterly amount mentioned above is for the entire state owned portfolio currently occupied or utilised by the DoJ&CD, and not per individual building. This payment is meant to pay for property rates, maintenance and rehabilitation/refurbishment, and for the provision of professional services provided by the DPW.

3. The DoJ&CD is aware of the conditions at PC Pelser Building as this project is on the portfolio of the Department. The Regional Office of DoJ&CD together with the National Office have been attending site meetings at the Court to resolve the maintenance challenges. After the Department of Labour issued the contravention notice regarding the lifts, the matter was escalated to the Deputy Directors-General and professionals within DPW. This led to numerous visits to the Court by the DoJ&CD’s Chief Director: Facilities Management and the professional team from DPW National Office. The visits were between June and November 2018 where it was agreed that a service provider be appointed in the interim whilst a major project for the replacement of the lifts is being planned.

I will further engage the Minister of Public Works on our bilateral meetings to ensure that the projects regarding lifts and plumbing works at this Court are expedited.

Whether, with reference to the reply of the Minister of Public Service and Administration to question 141 for oral reply on 7 September 2018, his department and the entities reporting to him implemented the Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council resolution that all persons employed in the Public Service as Assistant Directors must have their salary level upgraded from level 9 to level 10, and that all Deputy Directors must have their salary level upgraded from level 11 to level 12; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development implemented Resolution 3 of 2009. In implementing the Resolution, the Department confined itself to the condition set in paragraph 3.6.3 which deals with accelerated grade progression for salary levels 9-10 and 11-12 respectively. To this end, all employees from salary levels 9-10 and 11-12 who meet the below mentioned qualifying criteria are accordingly progressed/upgraded:

a) Twelve (12) years continuous service and should have at least obtained above satisfactory rating on his performance assessment; and

b) Fifteen (15) years of continuous service and should have at least obtained above satisfactory rating on his performance assessment

2. The National Prosecuting Authority implemented PSCBC Resolution 1 of 2012 in conjunction with the Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA) Circular 16/P dated 25 February 2013. All posts that were filled on salary levels 9 and 11 after the implementation of PSCBC, Resolution 3 of 2009 were re-graded according to the DPSA’s Implementation Directive. All employees who occupied those posts were thus upgraded into the salary levels 10 and 12 respectively.

3. Employees of Legal Aid South Africa are not appointed under the Public Service Act, 1994 but are employed in terms of Legal Aid SA Act 39 of 2014. Persons who are employed at salary level 9 and those employed at salary level 11 can be progressed to salary level 10 and salary level 12 respectively subject to the scope of pay progression of the job grading of a position and on condition that an employee’s annual performance review is good and scored at 80% and above.

4. Neither PSCBC Resolution 3 of 2009 nor Resolution 1 of 2012 has been implemented in the Special Investigating Unit (SIU). The pay progression model being referred to is not in use in the SIU as the SIU has its own grading system in place.

Reply:

I have been informed by the Office of the Acting Chief Litigation Officer as follows:

(1)(a)(i) 526 public servants; and (ii) 4 Ministers; and (b) the statistics concerned regarding the costs, have not been kept separately, because they are managed in the normal processes and kept with all other files, which are allocated to a State Attorney if and when such an application is brought. The costs that could be sourced, are indicated in the tables below.

(2) None. In the normal processes in State Attorneys’ Offices, such statistics are not kept separately, but are kept with all other normal files and allocated to a State Attorney if and when such an application is brought. In respect of the Heads of Department, Chief Financial Officers and Members of the Executive Council who applied for State cover, no separate record or statistics of such matters, were kept.

(3) No, because I have been informed that it is mostly SAPS members who are faced with this situation; and SAPS recoup the money themselves. The SAPS members sign an undertaking to pay before the matter is referred to the State Attorneys’ Offices and SAPS executes it internally.

(4) No such statement is necessary.

Regarding the Mahikeng State Attorneys’ Office, the information as received from the Office of the State Attorney, is that the State Attorneys have represented Ministers in all claims. This was however in the official (normal) capacity and not in their personal capacity. The State Attorney, Mahikeng is therefore not aware of any Minister who forfeited administrative protection. Therefore the Head of the Office informs me that there are no such cases.

The Office of the State Attorney has also represented individual officials in their official capacities who were cited as co-defendants with the relevant Minister. The State Attorney is not aware of any of those officials who forfeited their administrative protection. Therefore the Head of Office informs me that there are no such cases.

As the Office has not kept statistics of this nature before, it is not possible to provide a breakdown of the costs incurred in respect of all these cases. In this respect, I am informed that there are no costs to report on, as there were no such cases where the Minister, Member of the Executive Council (MEC) or Officials have applied for legal representation in their personal capacity.

Mulaudzi, Adv TE to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

With reference to his reply to question 3135 on 15 November 2018, (a) who are the interested parties that his department may further consult and (b) will further research be conducted; (2) will his department consult other government departments regarding the regulations; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. (a) Various Constitutional Court cases have confirmed the principle that it is a constitutional imperative to facilitate public involvement in the legislative processes, which by implication includes the making of delegated legislation. If this important principle (which is sometimes referred to as participatory democracy), is not adhered to, the laws or regulations in question may be unconstitutional. Any proposed legislative proposal that gives effect to the South African Law Reform Commission Report on Adult Prostitution (Project 107) (the Report), will be subjected to a comprehensive and open public consultation process. By implication, all interested parties, who among others, will include organizations and establishments that represent persons involved in sex work as well as sex workers themselves, will be given an opportunity to raise their views. A public consultation process, because of its open and public character, ensures that everybody is given an equal opportunity to raise their views and acts as a counterweight to secret lobbying and influence-peddling.

(b) As indicated in the Reply to Question 3135, the Department is in the process of further researching aspects relevant to the Report in order to make legislative proposals that are best suited to our country.

2. The public consultation process discussed under paragraph (1)(a) above, will involve consultation with other Departments in the national, provincial and local sphere of Government due to the cross-cutting nature and implications of sex work. Any regulatory measure that deals with sex work and which may impact on the functions, resources or mandates of any other Department, will be drafted in consultation with the Department involved.

In view of the need to promote equal and efficient administration of justice and the legal and administrative processes administered by the High Courts of South Africa, what (a) are the reasons for the backlog that is currently being experienced in the office of the Master of the High Court in Pretoria and (b) exactly is the extent of the backlog in the specified office; (2) Whether his department is taking any steps to address the backlog; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (a) what are the relevant details and (b) what is the envisaged date of the resolution of the backlog; (3) What is the average backlog in the offices of the Master of the High Court in the other six provincial divisions?

Reply:

1. (a) The Master of the High Court in Pretoria is making use of off-site storage for their  files which are not active files. During May 2017, the storage contract expired and was awarded to a new service provider. The transfer of the Pretoria Master’s files from the one service provider to another proved to be very challenging as there were disputes with regards to what should still be paid to the previous service provider, a matter which ended up in court.

There were also delays experienced with the transfer of the physical files as the previous service provider struggled to locate all the Pretoria Master’s files. Once the files were transferred  to the new service provider, challenges were experienced with regards to the way in which the files were stored, causing delays in the retrieval of the files.

During this period, the Master experienced delays in receiving files from off-site storage and thus could not deal with the amendments to be done on these files, causing a backlog.

(b) The Master has a backlog on Trust amendments, Trustee amendments and correspondence in older files. All new registrations and appointments are being dealt with as they are logged, as attending to these is not dependent on the receipt of files from off-site storage.

2. (a) The Master has implemented the following measures to address the challenges experienced and dealing with the backlog:

i) The Pretoria Master’s Office has started keeping all trust files as from 2016 in the office vaults instead of sending them back to off-site storage;

ii) Monthly meetings are being held between the Pretoria Master’s Office and the current service provider to ensure that all challenges are sorted out expediently;

iii) All requested files have now been received from the service provider and funds have been allocated and approved for 24 officials in the Pretoria Master’s Office to work overtime and weekends as from 15 November to 15 December 2018 in order to bring the backlog up to date.

(b) The backlog situation will be assessed again on 15 December 2018, but all indications are that the backlog will be cleared by 1 March 2019.

3. There are no backlogs in the other fifteen (15) Master’s Offices that needs special intervention.

Groenewald, Dr PJ to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

Whether his department, in collaboration with the National Prosecuting Authority, intends prosecuting cases referred by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission for further investigation and possible prosecution; if so, (a) how many cases, (b) on which dates will the specified cases begin and (c) who are the accused in each case; (2) if such prosecutions fully comply with the provisions of section 9 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996; (3) whether he will make a statement about the matter?

Reply:

The investigation of cases emanating from the Truth & Reconciliation Commission (TRC) is the responsibility of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (DPCI) of the South African Police Service (SAPS). The DPCI has been conducting such investigations since 2011. The investigations are guided by the Priority Crimes Litigation Unit (PCLU) of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA). When investigations in individual cases are concluded, the PCLU is requested to make a decision whether or not to prosecute. It is neither the policy of the DPCI nor the NPA to comment on ongoing investigations and consequently information regarding cases under investigation cannot be supplied before decisions whether or not to prosecute are made.

The NPA, however, can confirm that a decision has been taken to prosecute four former Security Branch members for the murder of the deceased cases in 1983 and another former Security Branch member for the murder of Ahmed Timol in 1971. Both the DPCI and the NPA are under a constitutional obligation to perform their powers without fear, favour or prejudice. Decisions to prosecute are informed by the NPA Policy, which has been issued in terms of section 179 of the Constitution. These mechanisms ensure that there are no selective prosecutions. If an individual accused is aggrieved by a decision to prosecute him/her, he/she may approach a High Court for relief.

Reply:

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has informed me that the NPA does not keep statistics per crime type. However, to the extent that particular crimes were attributable to gang activity, the NPA keeps statistical information regarding the implementation of the crimes reported under the Prevention of Organised Crime Act (POCA) since the inception of dedicated organised crime prosecution components in Deputy Public Prosecutions (DPP) divisions. Section 9 of POCA creates specific offences for gang related crimes. However, certain offences such as drug trafficking, murder, attempted murder, intimidation, assault, and robbery are directly related to gang activities and gang membership. The statistics provided therefore include such cases, where it was identified that they were gang related.

The information tabulated below is therefore provided per province and financial year where such cases existed/were recorded. The rest of the provinces do not have such cases.

Reply:

I have been informed by the National Prosecuting Authority that:

  1. The senior prosecutor was of the view that a prima facie case had not been made out. However, they relied on the wrong section of the relevant Act. The office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) reviewed the matter and decided to prosecute.
  2. This question falls away as the DPP has overruled the decision of the senior prosecutor and decided that prosecution should be instituted. The matter is on the court roll of the Germiston Regional Court and has been remanded to 16 November 2018.

What has his department done to initiate engagements in respect of the SA Law Reform Commission’s report and recommendations in respect of Project 107: Sexual Offences Adult Prostitution?

Reply:

The South African Law Reform Commission (SALRC) Report on Adult Prostitution (Project 107) (the Report) was published on 26 May 2017. Since its publication, the Report was discussed in various forums and engagements with interest groups, amongst others are:

A) Conference on Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism;

B) Combined SANAC and Mail & Guardian Critical Thinking Forum on the decriminalization of “sex work”, in which the Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development participated;

C) Conference on Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism as invited by the acting National Executive Director of Child Welfare South Africa and ECPAT International;

D) The Human Rights Baseline Assessment Inception meeting jointly organised by SANAC and the Global Fund;

E) Engagements with the Global fund baseline assessment on human rights-related barriers to HIV and TB services for key populations in South Africa (including people who provide sexual services for reward);

F) The SANAC Government Task Team (GTT) meeting;

G) Roundtable Discussion on 'Prostitution/Sex Work: Is it work and is it a choice?: SACBC Parliamentary Organization, Embrace Dignity and the Hanns Seidel Foundation;

H)The Multi Party Women’s Caucus; and many more.

The Department closely followed the views expressed during these discussions. The Department also responded to various representations by interest groups, amongst others, representations by Cause for Justice, Stop Trafficking in Person Group and the Sex Worker’s Education and Advocacy Taskforce.

The report is currently being considered by the Department with a view to advising Cabinet on the proposals with regard to legislative reform on adult prostitution. In order to do this, the Department will draft legislation which will be published for public comments. During the drafting process, the Department may further consult with interested parties. Although the Report seems to be comprehensive, the recommendations that were made on legislative interventions to deal with adult prostitution as well as other non-legislative intervention proposed in the Report are not universally accepted by different interest groups. As a result of the divergent views, further research is necessary to explore, in detail, the recommendations made in the Report in order to make legislative proposals that are acceptable to the different interest groups. In particular, there must also be extensive consultation with government departments on the implementation of the non-legislative recommendations, which has financial and other implications, before Cabinet is approached to endorse the said recommendations.

Alberts, Mr ADW to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

On what date does he intend to submit legislation that will make provision for the (a) Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civic and Political Rights and (b) Optional Protocol of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights; 2) whether he will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

  1. In response to the question, it is best to consider each Protocol separately.

a) Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civic and Political Rights (ICCPR)

There are two Optional Protocols to the ICCPR, and South Africa has ratified both. The first Optional Protocol’s Preamble states,

“The State Parties to the present Protocol,

Considering that in order further to achieve the purposes of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (hereinafter referred to as the Covenant) and the implementation of its provisions it would be appropriate to enable the Human Rights Committee set up on part IV of the Covenant (hereinafter referred to as the Committee) to receive and consider, as provided in the present Protocol, communications from individuals claiming to be victims of violations of any of the rights set forth in the Covenant.”

As such, the first Optional Protocol allows direct claims to be made by individuals who believe that rights they are guaranteed under the ICCPR have been violated by the State, to the ICCPR Committee, but only once all domestic remedies have been exhausted. Thus, by ratifying the first Optional Protocol, South Africa has accepted the jurisdiction of the Committee to accept direct claims from individuals who have exhausted their domestic remedies. No further legislative amendments are required to our domestic law. In fact, the Committee has heard direct claims from South African applicants, and South Africa has responded as required in the procedures of the first Optional Protocol.

With regards to the second Optional Protocol, this Optional Protocol is aimed at the abolition of the death penalty. Our Constitution and jurisprudence from the case of the State versus Makwanyane (1995), has abolished the death penalty. No further legislation is required to give effect to the second Protocol.

b) Optional Protocol of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR)

South Africa ratified the ICESCR on 12 January 2015 and has not ratified the Optional Protocol to the ICESCR.

This Optional Protocol allows the same type of direct access by individual claimants to the ICESCR Committee. South Africa is in the process of considering the Optional Protocol’s consistency with domestic and international law to which South Africa is obligated, with a view to ratifying the Optional Protocol. Any consideration of legislative changes, if any will be considered at the appropriate time

.

2. No further statement is necessary at this stage.

What are the details of (a) the progress made by the joint ministerial investigation into corruption in the form of state prosecutors who are deliberately thwarting justice by bungling cases in collusion with defence attorneys and (b) any arrests that have been made in this regard?

Reply:

I wish to inform the Honourable Member that I do not have any information regarding a joint Ministerial Investigation regarding the alleged bungling of cases between the State Prosecutors and Defence Attorneys.

Individuals complaints are submitted against decisions taken by individual prosecutors, Deputy Directors of Public Prosecution and/or the National Director of Prosecutions, these complaints referred to the Acting National Director of Public Prosecution for investigation and reply to the complainant, as only the Acting NDPP can decide on matters relating to prosecution, in terms of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996 and the National Prosecuting Authority Act, 1998 (Act No. 32 of 1998)

It would be appreciated if the Honourable Member could please clarify the question, if additional information is required.

(b) Therefore falls away.

What (a) number of beneficiaries has not received their money from teh Guardians Fund due to a lack of supporting documentation and (b) amount was returned from teh Guardians Fund to the Pension Fund since 1 April 2014?

Reply:

(a) In terms of section 89 of the Administration of Estates Act 1965 (Act No. 66 of 1965), the Master shall upon application of nay person who becomes entitled to receive funds out of the Guardians Fund, pay that money to the that person. Prior to any payment processed, supporting documentation together with the application has to be submitted, to verify that the correct beneficiary is paid.

In some instances, funds are received from the Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF) without supporting documentation and/ or information to identify the person to whom the funds belong to. Beneficiaries can then not receive their money from the Guardians Fund due to lack of supporting documentation to identify them. These funds then need to be sent back to GEPF, instead of paying tot eh beneficiaries.

Based on the above, since 2016, funds of approximately 1 044 beneficiaries were refunded to GEPF.

(b) Since 2016, an amount of R192 914 462.69 in favour of the 1 044 beneficiaries was refunded to GDPF due to lack of supporting documentation to identify them.

Additionally, a decision was taken in 2016 to return unidentified funds received to GEPF, after opportunity was afforded to the GEPF to ensure that appropriate documentation be submitted as the non-receipt of supporting documentation places an unacceptable level of risk on the Guardian`s Fund which in effect represents a transfer of risk from the GEPF to the Guardian`s Fund.

Alberts, Mr ADW to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

With reference to his reply to question 379 on 19 March 2018, (a) what is the current status of the judicial inquiry into the death of the specified person (details furnished) in the Ford Kuga case and (b) by what date is the judicial inquiry anticipated to be completed; 2) why does the inquest appear before a magistrate and not a Supreme Court Judge; 3) whether he will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

I wish to inform the Honourable Member that the Magistrate of George has requested permission from me, in terms of section 6 of the Inquests Act, 1959, to have the inquest heard by a Judge of the High Court.

I have also received follow-up representations from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions: Western Cape, which I am currently considering.

(a)(i): The statistics of 01 January 2004 are not readily available because there was no system in place to record information. Manual count will have to take place and this will take time. For the purpose of this question (a)(i) our statistics will commence from 2011. A hand system was implemented to manage the offenders sentenced to Life imprisonment as the Admission and Release System (A&R System) of the Department was not configured to provide necessary information to manage caseloads.

Offenders sentenced to life imprisonment due for consideration:

(a)(ii): The Admission and Release System (A&R System) of the Department was not configured to provide information on determinate sentences however, the Department of Correctional Services is developing and piloting an Integrated Inmate Management System (IIMS) that will replace the A & R System. This will, among others, enable the DCS to manage the admission and release of offenders in an integrated manner.

(b): The following statistics of offenders sentenced to life imprisonment were manually kept by the Department.

(d): The below statistics indicate that since this Administration came into office there has been a sharp increase in both the number of profiles considered and the number of inmates released on parole. We attribute this success to various interventions that we put in place to ensure that as many as possible offenders who qualify to be considered are indeed considered.

Breytenbach, Adv G to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

(1)Whether his department’s victim-offender dialogue programme is a prerequisite for parole applications to be considered; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, how much weight is given to the victim-offender dialogues when parole applications are considered; (2) what number of (a) further profile dates decisions did he take recommending that a victim-offender dialogue be completed (i) in each of the past six calendar years and (ii) since 1 January 2018, (b) parole applications for persons serving (i) life sentences and (ii) other sentences were granted without a victim-offender dialogue in each year and (c)(i) his department’s officials and (ii) other organisation were available in each management area in each of the specified years to facilitate victim-offender dialogues?

Reply:

1.Victim-offender-dialogue programme is not a prerequisite for consideration of offenders on parole. However it is a crucial element in the rehabilitation process to ensure effective social reintegration with more involvement by victims, families and communities.

(2) (a)(i)(ii) (b)(i)(ii)

The current Admission and Release System (A&R) is outdated and the Department of Correctional Services is developing and piloting an Integrated Inmate Management System (IIMS) that will replace the A & R System. This will, amongst others, enable the DCS to manage the admission and release of offenders in an integrated manner. The A & R System was not configured to reflect the requested information and it is therefore unfortunately not readily available.

(2) (c)(i)(ii)

The department has always used its professionals Social Workers, Psychologist Chaplains and even the external partners to facilitate the Victim-Offender Dialogue (VOD) anytime it is required. VOD forums have been established in management areas to facilitate these VODs. Lastly Social Auxiliary Workers have been contracted from 2015 to assist in the implementation of Restorative Justice (VOM/VOD).

(1)What number of times did the parole boards of each management area meet (a) in each of the past six calendar years and (b) since 1 January 2018; (2) what number of parole applications of persons serving (a) life sentences and (b) other sentences were denied in each management area in each specified calendar year due to (i) files that were not properly compiled by the relevant Case Management Committee, (ii) programmes required by the Correctional Supervision Plan that were not completed in time and/or (iii) reports that expired before the parole boards could consider them; (3) what number of (a) cases were instituted against his department in each management area for delays in the processing of parole applications in each specified calendar year and (b) prisoners were represented in each case? NW2225E

Reply:

(1) Parole Boards have been appointed on a permanent basis at all management areas and schedule sitting continuously in order to deal with cases received from Case Management Committees. Currently there are 52 Parole Boards in the country and each Parole Board determines the frequency and number of sittings according to their operational requirements. Unfortunately, the detail as requested is not centrally available.

(2) (a)(b) (i) and (ii)(iii)

The Admission and Release System (A&R System) was not configured to provide the requested information and it is therefore unfortunately not readily available. However, the Department of Correctional Services is developing and piloting an Integrated Inmate Management System (IIMS) that will replace the A&R System. This will, among others, enable the DCS to manage the admission and release of offenders in an integrated manner.

It is important to note that a quality control mechanism has been implemented by Heads of Centres to ensure that profile reports submitted to Parole Boards comply with the required standards and that files which do not comply are corrected before reaching the Parole Boards. This includes a progress report on the Correctional

Sentence Plan as well as ensuring that reports from professionals are not older than 2 years.
