WHAT IS ARSON? the willful or malicious burning of property (such as a building) especially with criminal or fraudulent intent.
The crime of arson is committed in a number of different ways in the South African context. However, what is common to all incidences of the crime is that it causes danger: either to property or persons or both. Although the crime is traditionally classified as a crime against property, in the common-law sources upon which the crime is based, that the crime also protects the community. In this regard the use of the crime to punish the fire-setter who sets his or her own property alight, foreseeing that the fire may endanger the interests of others, is highlighted. The reasons for deliberate fire-setting include vandalism, concealment of crime, revenge, fraud and mental illness. With regard to mental illness, arson has always been of special interest to psychiatrists. In the context of South African law, deliberate fire-setting has been punished as arson in a number of contexts. As in other jurisdictions it has provided the means for insurance fraud, as well as being employed in order to commit murder. Deliberate fire-setting has been used as a means of political violence.
