Alleged Silencing Of Assaulted Motorists By SANDF Raises Concerns

The motorists who were reportedly assaulted by the police’s VIP unit on the N1 in Johannesburg have allegedly been prohibited by their employer, the SA National Defence Force (SANDF), from discussing the attack unless a general is present, according to civil organization Action Society.

The organization is representing one of the victims in civil litigation against the police.

Action Society’s Ian Cameron stated on Friday in a statement that this alleged order remained in effect even during the victims’ personal time.

Daniël Eloff, the legal representative for Action Society, challenged this order, asserting that it infringed upon the victims’ right to freedom of expression.

Eloff emphasized that the SANDF lacks jurisdiction to restrict individuals from expressing their views or sharing their experiences outside of work hours and off military premises, based on South African law and the Constitution’s Bill of Rights.

He stressed the importance of bringing the truth to light and argued that the victims have the right to share their personal experiences publicly.

Eloff called for amplifying their voices to draw attention to the issue and prompt immediate and decisive action.

Meanwhile, Cameron expressed suspicion that political pressure from higher-ranking officials in both the SANDF and the police may be responsible for the situation.

He highlighted the delay in justice on the side of the SAPS and the silencing of the victims within the SANDF.

He concluded by asserting their determination to continue speaking out and refusing to remain silent. The SA National Defence Union confirmed that all three victims are members of the SANDF.
