It's clemens from vienna Austria here, i am 27 now and ive lived in cape town from 2003 till 2006. it was beginning of 2004...i dont have no details no more when the police arrested me on Longstreet cape town because of one joint of weed which wasn't even mine but of a friend of mine. they took me on the police station and there they threatened my friend with a loaded pistol.they kept us over night and put us to Pollsmor on the next day.
They didn't let me make any phone calls and just let me talk to a lawyer 2 days later who then told me he can bail me out for 1500E.
I surely would have payed it but they didn't allow me to make a call overseas. i think they was enjoying having me in there.
I was lucky cause one guy from Uganda who saw us getting arrested bailed me out a few days later. he afterwards stole my laptop and my bail money but i was still thankful. i didn't get raped or anything but they did rob my shoes and jewlery- i was scared to death.
In front of court later on i had to pay 50E and didn't even have the chance to speak or defend myself what made it obvious for me that it was just a try to get some money out of me...i am not a racist or anything i am even married to a colored girl for 7 years now.
