My eldest son Yannique ST Laurant Phillips (ID No. 801218 5124 08 5) was callously murdered and the matter reported to the South African Police Service, Delft.
What followed makes a complete mockery of our criminal justice system, the greed of politicians and the manifest incompetence of the SAPS. Eight years on I am no where to closure to my son's brutal murder and will not let this matter rest until his murderer is brought to justice. He walks the streets freely, confident in the knowledge that his rights far outweigh my rights as a victim of crime notwithstanding the adoption of a Service Charter for victims of crime in South Africa.
Rest in Peace Yannique I will not rest until he his brought before a competent court and made to pay for his crime against humanity. Notwithstanding President's Zuma's assurances, the DA's Helen Zille on taking office that she will provide me with assistance, several letters to the South African Police hierarchy and in desperation, I sought the intervention of MEC Lennit Max, we are nowhere closer to solving this callous and brutal murder.
So much for Cele's claims about the security situation in this country; tourists to this country be warned, as a victim of crime, I want to warn you that the chances of a successful prosecution are almost nil.
