Lethal Force: CSVR Submission on the Proposed Amendments to Section 49 of the Criminal Procedure Act

This is a submission by the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation to the Portfolio Committee on Justice and Constitutional Development regarding the Criminal Procedure Amendment Bill 2010. This submission motivates that this bill in its current form would lead to an expansion of police powers to use deadly force and consequently is likely to add to the problem of excessive use of deadly force by police.
