The opening of false cases is an offense and is punishable by law and will therefore not be tolerated by the South African Police Service.

On Monday, 14 May 2018, the Provincial Organised Crime Port Elizabeth arrested a 30 year old male and detained him in terms of the contravention of the Commissioner of Justice and Oaths Act, Section 9 – making a false statement under oath and theft.

The Cluster Commander for Motherwell Cluster, Major General Dawie Rabie sends out a stern warning to the communities that “We will not hesitate to arrest and detain those who open false cases. The cases opened are very serious allegations and require intensive investigation which entail many long hours, manpower and resources. These resources could have been fruitfully utilised in more urgent matters of policing.”
