Testifying Without Fear: A Report on Witness Management and the National Witness Protection Programme in South Africa

The focus of this report is on the National Witness Protection Programme (NWPP). The report is primarily based on 35 in-depth interviews with a range of individuals around the country who have first hand experiences of the functioning of the programme. The report presents both positive aspects and current challenges facing the NWPP at the present time. It also attempts to contextualise the programme against the backdrop of previous approaches to witness protection initiatives that were in operation prior to the implementation of the current programme.
