CSPRI paper uncovers de facto impunity for torture and other human rights violations by South African law enforcers
Recent high-profile incidents have drawn attention to the manner in which the police and the prison service conduct themselves.
Lukas Muntingh presented an investigation into whether subsets of the South African population reflect different law enforcement outcomes, and whether there is any evidence that this constitutes unfair discrimination in terms of the South African Constitution.
The CSPRI, established in 2003, is a research and advocacy project focussing on prisons and places of confinement in the African region, with the aim of furthering constitutional and human rights imperatives within these settings.
