Recent statements allegedly made by High Court Judge, Justice Mabel Jansen, expressing a view and belief that rape is a part of black culture must be investigated by the disciplinary body of the Judicial Services Commission.
Inkatha Freedom Party, Chief Whip in Parliament and Commissioner on Judicial Services Commission, Mr Narend Singh, MP, said ,”The matter is currently before the IFP’s National Executive Committee and I believe that a decision will shortly be taken on whether or not to lay an official complaint with the Judicial Services Commission in this regard.”
“Utterances such as this are totally unacceptable in a democratic South Africa. They are at clear odds with the code of judicial conduct and I believe warrant full investigation by the Judicial Services Commission,” concluded Singh, MP.
