COSATU welcomes the findings in relation to Oscar Pistorius
This is an important decision in the 16 Days of Activism - No Violence Against Woman Campaign and sends a clear signal that these abusers of woman and murderers of our people will not get away with it just because they are rich. COSATU applauds the State for taking this matter upon appeal, so that the rule of law can be reaffirmed. This verdict will go a long way to restore confidence in the law and have an impact on stopping vigilante killings.
Cosatu calls for the immediate incarceration of Pistorius and he should not be released on bail pending any appeals. He must serve his time for the crime.
