Police setting a precedent for everyone

THE Star (SA) of September 24 quotes police Assistant Commissioner Wayne Bvudzijena as saying: “We are also going to charge all those journalists who have been working at the ANZ without registration and the requisite accreditation.”

Might this set a legal precedent? The ZRP and other government workers would be wise to think more about the implications.

The logical conclusion would see the entire police force arrested for its failure to uphold the law and, on numerous occasions, of actually breaking the law.

I look forward to the entire Noczim staff appearing in court on corruption charges, the ZNA for war crimes charges committed in Matabeleland and the DRC.

In any civilised country this would be considered collective punishment but if we are going to have it, let’s implement it fully.
