Suid-Natal High lay charges

2011-05-11 00:00

TWO women teachers at Suid-Natal High School have been charged with assaulting pupils. Both cases have been referred to the chief public prosecutor for southern KwaZulu-Natal.

Ray Sansom, who acts for the National Prosecuting Authority in the province, confirmed this week that he is investigating two cases of assault laid against teachers at Suid-Natal and will decide within the next two weeks whether they will be prosecuted.

“I cannot comment further as the matter is sub judice, I also need to look even deeper into very complicated matters and get all the facts in the next week or two, and then I will have to decide whether these cases will go to court or not,” he said.

The Education Department reacted immediately once alerted to the situation, which it was not aware of. “Such actions are unacceptable, punishable and will be immediately investigated.”
