    I pronounce that all courtrooms retain the modo "Guilty until proven innocent" because there would be absolutely no other reason to accuse anyone otherwise...The public seems to agree yet when applied to themselves they find it rather coarse and vulgar.

    I agree, but I also agree that DNA matching at the scene of the crime with other implicative details is enough to throw away the key.

    And, sure enough, six months on the prosecution admits they've never had a shred of evidence against Nico Venter and they've dropped all charges. The police succeeded in lifting pressure from their shoulders by charging him and presumably they're hoping nobody will make much of a public fuss that they've failed to track down the actual killer.
    National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesman Mthunzi Mhaga said: “We feel there is nothing linking the accused to the offence at this stage.” He said the NPA had requested police to continue investigating the case.

    In May police said they were hunting for a second suspect, but at the time Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini declined to provide further details. Police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Eugene Opperman said that police were continuing their investigations. He said investigators had reached the conclusion that Venter was not linked in any way to the case.

    If the police were fully effective in detecting and prosecuting crime it would be a great deal rarer. Policing as it stands now in every Western country is shockingly ineffective. We need new techniques.

    God that's atrocious

    He said the police had now shifted their focus to him on the basis of a statement he made to police on March 10, regarding the circumstances of his daughter's death.
    March ffs! I understand that all people need not automatically be ruled out just because they're family but this is horrible. If they had questions they should have asked them in March, not doing the equivalent to poking this person with a red hot iron prod seemingly forever

    Re: Pretoria schoolgirl stabbed to death, hands hacked off

    The chap this thread was keen to have judicially killed is now "claiming R285 000 from the police for his alleged unlawful arrest". The police, you'll remember, then turned on her father as a scapegoat and then the news dried up. Nobody appears to be awaiting trial. I said earlier in the thread that the underlying problem to deterring rape and murder is inadequate policing. Goodness knows what sort of message this case has sent to the public at large.

    I thought we might wake this thread up. More of the story will emerge in the next month or so.
    There are 96 witnesses on the list that might be called to try and clarify who is responsible for the death of Smit.

    Her father, Johan Smit, and her ex-boyfriend, Nico Venter, were added as interested parties in the inquest, but not as suspects. Five years after the murder, no suspects have been arrested.

    Criminal law expert, Llwellyn Curlewis, says the state asks for an inquest into a death once the National Prosecuting Authority finds there are no suspects or enough evidence to arrest a suspect. A magistrate presides over the inquest. The inquest can be informal, in the magistrate’s chambers, or formal taking the form of a mini-trial with people testifying.

    “To determine one of four aspects, namely the identity of the deceased, the date of the deceased, obviously the reason or the cause of the death of the deceased and ultimately whether a person should be held liable, prima faci, which means at first glance thereof,” says Curlewis.
