    The GHJRU has released a report on Khayelitsha Magistrate Court’s suitability to become an official Dept of Justice dedicated Sexual Offences Court in response to a call from Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust for the Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development, Mr John Jeffrey, to improve services for sexual offences survivors in Khayelitsha in November 2017. After receiving the memorandum from Rape Crisis Cape¬†Town Trust, the Deputy Minister requested the GHJRU to include a small sub-study of Khayelitsha Magistrate Court in the GHJRU’s pilot project (the Improving Case Outcomes for Sexual Offences Survivors Pilot Project supported by USAID, which is being conducting across South Africa on Sexual Offences Courts and their role in improving case outcomes for sexual offences survivor) to assess the challenges faced in the court relating to sexual offences cases and services provision to sexual offences survivors.

    The report recommends that a sexual offences court be established in Khayelitsha. What do you think?
