Juvenile justice review 1999-2000
MetadataShow full item record
The two years covered in this review have seen major developments in the juvenile justice sphere. Not only have several important judicial decisions been handed down, but the process of law reform has advanced significantly with the completion of the South African Law Commission's Report on Juvenile Justice which was presented to the Minister of Justice in August 2000. Draft legislation (entitled the Child Justice Bill) to establish a separate procedural system for children in conflict with the law is proposed in that document, and its contents are destined to be debated in Parliament in the second half of 2001.
