Child maintenance defaulters arrested in Western Cape

2011-10-29 07:18

A total of 220 child maintenance defaulters were arrested in the Western Cape in October, police said today.

“They were brought before the court to answer on their failures to support their children,” said lieutenant colonel Andrè Traut.

The arrests were a result of Operation Isondlo, an initiative by the justice department and police.

“Every endeavour will be made to ensure that children are not deprived of basic needs and education.

“Those contemplating to skip a child maintenance payment to celebrate the season can expect to be dealt with.”

Traut said 569 individuals had been added to the defaulters’ list and would soon be visited by police officers.
