    So now the disadvantaged victims will have to bring a case against the state (RBPF) to recover loss of assets and prolonged mental anguish.
    This is surely a case of cruel and inhumane treatment.
    Only the criminals, deviants and rainbow collation have rights in this upside down and backwards new world.

    If the police would stop the executions and brutality of suspects , they would do what is right. Even at the Records office the machine break down and people can’t get a police certificate of character. The Force need to be more professional and try to enhance its operations. The accused persons should sue the state for malicious prosecution and defamation of character.
