SOUTH AFRICA - A CSIN study indicates that statistically, out of an estimated 2,115,946 serious & violent crimes committed in South Africa in 2004/5, there were only 62,717 convictions. A conviction rate of 2.96%.
Only 1,100,292 (52%) were reported to and/or recorded by the SAPS.
This means that at least 2,053,229 criminals, equivalent to the population of a city like Cape Town or Durban, who perpetrated serious and violent crimes in 2004/5 are walking free on our streets. - Wilma Pienaar
