Prisoners and their human rights

 

Cyril Ramaphosa has indicated that he would like some prisoners to face “hard labour” in jail.  AGREE WITH THAT.    The DA is against such suggestion.   Agree with hard labour for all criminals, especially killers, attackers and rapers – they do not belong in any community – they must not have any human rights, because they took away their victim’s right to live.  To enter illegally any home to steal, attack, kill or rape are also unconstitutional  – Breytenbach, spokesperson of the DA must read her so-called constitution about lives that have been taken away in South Africa – if you supported any criminal, you are also unconstitutional.   Read the Bill of rights – citizens have also rights.

Hoekom moet oortreders beter behandel word in die luukse tronke, alles word gratis aan hulle uitgedeel, 3 maaltye per dag, die beste mediese sorg.

Indien die misdadiger ‘n vrou verkrag of iemand vermoor het, het die slagoffers geen mediese dekking van die regering af nie, terwyl die misdadiger 5 ster behandeling in ons tronke kry.

Dis tyd om dit om te draai – genoeg is genoeg – slagoffers het immers meer regte as die misdadiger behalwe in Suid-Afrika kry die misdadigers en terroriste voorkeur bo die slagoffers.

Is DA nou ‘n regter ook om oor al die misdadigers wat besluite maak wat die beste is vir hul kollegas in die tronk wat meer beskerming geniet.

Harde arbeid maak nie dood nie – daar sal niks van hul handjies afval deur hard te werk nie.  As hul kon inbreek, steel en moor, kan hul harde werk ook verrig virt die tydperk in die tronke.     Daar is baie tipes werk wat onder streng en gewapende toesig uitgevoer kan word – paaie kan ook opgeknap word, reparasies van geboue, kan alles onder gewapende toesig plaasvind.

Wat is die situasie tans?   Misdadigers bly in beter geboue as enige bankrot staatshospitaal in hierdie land.

Misdadigers verdien meer as enige pensionaris in hierdie land  – neem weg hul regte, want niemand het hierdie misdadiger forseer om misdade te pleeg nie.      Hoeveel pensioenarisse is nie al uitgewis en vermoor nie?

Hoeveel slagoffers kry nooit een sent terug vir pyn en lyding van regering of DA, of familie wat wees agtergelaat word met geliefdes wat gesterf het weens ‘n plaas of ander aanval?

Hoeveel 15% VAT kry die regering uit hierdie aanvalle van misdadigers, hetsy medies of versekering en sekuriteit – miljoene rande.  SASRIA behoort aan die regering.

To enter illegally any home is also unconstitutional and to kill or rape are also unconstitutional  – Breytenbach  must read her so-called constitution about life taken away in South Africa – if you supported any criminal, you are also unconstitutional.   Bill of rights.

There are various of questions unanswered.   Is in disagreement with Breytenbach  of the DA and their “softserving” of the criminals – what is this in for the DA?     She is not a victim or her family.    Why have prisoners more human rights than citizens in South Africa?

What have Breytenback or her party do to the families and victims of farm attacks, farm killings or any white / black or other killings and rapes?

Did the DA not write the legislation and “their human rights” on prisoners?.   Prisoners get everything for free in jail.   In the first instance, why are the prisoners there, because what they did to their victims.

Ramaphosa’s reported suggestion that prisoners should be made to do hard labour is both unconstitutional and populist, the Democratic Alliance (DA) said on 2 December 2019.

Ramaphosa is reported to have told mourners at the funeral of Precious Ramabulana that “government would work to change the justice system to ensure that people convicted of crimes against women and children remain behind bars for life and under the harshest conditions.”    

He was quoted as adding: “They should not be in jail and enjoy life there, they should be subjected to hard labour – the harshest of labour,” and to have called for the state having “active record” of all offenders found guilty of crimes against women and children. 

Ramabulana – the victim,  was found in her residence near the Capricorn TVET college in Limpopo last week after being stabbed 52 times.

How many other women and specific children were find and no raper or killer is behind bars and still on the run.

DA justice spokeswoman Glynnis Breytenbach said the president’s remarks were cause for concern and of a similar nature to those by Justice Minister Ronald Lamola last week. He suggested that Cabinet should discuss a return of the death penalty.

“These types of statements are unfortunate, emotional and coming from the president of a Constitutional democracy, frankly deeply disappointing. It is cheap talk, speaking to placate the general population, but which can never be delivered.  The tragedy which befell Precious Ramabulana happens all too often in South Africa, and now, on an almost weekly basis.”

It is not on a weekly basis – it is a daily basis – how many killed per day?   50+   It is cheap talking from the “leader of the country”.

Killers and rapers must not have any rights and prison and must do hard labour , they already took their victim’s rights away – read the socalled constitution and human rights.

It is time government must financially supported all victims of crime, because they can not control the criminals.

Breytenbach said fighting gender-based violence required a multi-faceted approach.

“This will, unfortunately, require a much more comprehensive approach than the frankly unconstitutional suggestions offered by President Ramaphosa.  It will also require a lot of hard work and commitment, and the political will to address the problem,” Breytenbach said.

She said the prison system was so compromised that there was no hope of rehabilitation in jail.

“Increasing sentences and then throwing away the key is no solution to what is largely a societal and socio-economic problem. To suggest that hard labour or the death sentence will solve the problem is to bury one’s head in the sand, and the president will have to do so much better if we are to begin to solve the problem of GBV (gender-based violence).”

She said government would have to spend money on solving the problem, including recapacitating the entire criminal justice system.

South Africa’s head of state told the assembled media and crowds in Limpopo that his administration wanted to make prison ‘less enjoyable’ for inmates, and he punted the possibility of forcing prisoners to take part in hard labour – extended periods of physical work with little-to-no monetary reward:

“Government would work to change the justice system to ensure that people convicted of crimes against women and children remain behind bars for life and under the harshest conditions. They should not be in jail and enjoy life there, they should be subjected to hard labour – the harshest of labour.”

Cyril Ramaphosa

 

The DA, however, have been left aghast at the suggestion. Glynnis Breytenbach is the Shadow Minister of Justice, and she was enraged by the “unconstitutional idea”. The party stalwart slammed Ramaphosa for using “cheap talk” to score political points, and also dismissed the idea of reintroducing a death penalty to SA:

These types of statements are unfortunate, emotional and frankly, deeply disappointing. It is cheap talk, speaking to placate the general population, but which can never be delivered. The tragedy which befell Precious Ramabulana happens all too often in South Africa, and now, on an almost weekly basis.” 

“We require a much more comprehensive approach than the frankly unconstitutional suggestions offered by President Ramaphosa. There is no hope of rehabilitation for offenders of any nature and increasing sentences and then throwing away the key is no solution. To suggest that hard labour or a death sentence will solve the problem is to bury one’s head in the sand.”
