STATEMENT: Call for release of Marikana Panel of Experts report

More than 20 civil society organisations fighting for social justice, supported by the Marikana Commission Chairperson Judge Ian Farlam, state that meaningful engagement with the new draft SAPS Bill is being undermined due to the 2018 report of the Panel of Experts on Policing being kept secret. The organisations and individuals note with serious concern that, almost two and a half years after it was finalised and handed to the Minister of Police, the final report of the Marikana panel of experts has not been released. The release of the report, which was scheduled to take place at the Portfolio Committee on Police meeting on the 25th of November, has now been postponed indefinitely.
