I write this letter in absolute astonishment to the reaction to the Eben Etzebeth saga.

Firstly the SAHRC held a community conference in Langebaan where Etzebeth is accused of racism and found guilty by Buang Jones who is the head of legal at that organisation.

Following that meeting Rapport reported that Jones is not aware of statements of witnesses who testified in defence of Etzebeth. 

A further statement by the SAHRC advised that they would require more time to investigate the matter.

On Monday Adriaan Basson called on Etzebeth to come home to clear his name.

The SAHRC has issued extremely confusing statements. If Etzebeth is found not guilty I would like to call upon Jones to resign as he would then have grossly infringed upon Etzebeth's basic human right not to be judged before all allegations have been confirmed.

Etzebeth is a professional rugby player at a World Cup. To call for him to return to South Africa to clear his name if he is indeed not guilty borders on idiocy.
