Front Cover
Juta, 2005 - Law - 1047 pages
This substantially revised work on South African criminal law incorporates the latest crime statistics, succinct critical observations on restorative justice, and information on victims' rights and compensation in its review of criminal law in the first decade of democracy in South Africa. Chapters examine the impact of the Constitution on the principles and practices of criminal justice, a critical appraisal of the limits on the use of force in apprehending suspects, and the implications of the Youth Justice Bill. New chapters address organized crime, including data on racketeering and money laundering, as well as a study of corporate criminal responsibility in light of modern theories and up-to-date coverage of recent anti-corruption legislation.
