Justice for Voiceless Rape Victims

Update posted by Teresa Oelofse On Mar 14, 2018

Today I am sad.... angry ... I feel let down by justice .... the last bit of hope I had in making sure that the person that raped my child and threatened her with death if she should ever tell, will notj get away with it, has been stolen away. Because of a broken system.....

Today, after a full year of trying to prepare my already broken child to be able to tell her story in court. after 3 postponements ... 6 days away from the start of the Trial, I had to hear that the State is withdrawing the charges against the perpetrator, due to a poor chance of getting a conviction. HOGWASH if I have ever heard it. A year ago, the state indicated that they have a strong case, and now all of a sudden THIS??

THE ONLY THING THAT IS LEFT TO DO IS TO APPLY TO THE PRIVATE PROSECUTION AUTHORITY TO TAKE THE MATTER OVER AND FOR US TO PROSECUTE PRIVATELY ... BUT THIS IS GOING TO COST A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF MONEY.

I NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN. IS IT OK THAT CHILDREN WHO SUFFER OF A DISABILITY, WHO IS TOO FRAGILE TO TESTIFY, WHO MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO STAND CROSS EXAMINATION TO BE RAPED AND FOR THEIR PERPETRATORS TO GO FREE.

THIS CANNOT BE ALLOWED .. PLEASE HELPS US RAISE THE NECESSARY FUNDS TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS INJUSTICE DOES NOT HAPPEN.

I am not a violent person ... but mob justice is becoming more and more appealing to me ... sigh ... I know, that is not the answer, but it is real difficult to accept the answer that was given
