Crime statistics: SA a hotbed of cold cases

South Africa

Johannesburg – The recent crime stats paint a grim picture once again.

But many times, victims are told their cases are closed or have gone cold due to insufficient evidence.

This could be due to a lack of evidence or capacity from the police to do thorough investigations and follow up on leads.

Police Minister Bheki Cele says police are failing but also alluded to a failing economy not contributing to putting a dent in the shocking crime stats.
