SAHRC Says Prisoners’ Rights Are Violated

The SAHRC says the right to a healthy environment of the suspects detained at Maake police station outside Tzaneen in Limpopo has been violated

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) says the right to a healthy environment of the suspects detained at Maake police station outside Tzaneen in Limpopo has been violated.
 
About 51 awaiting trial inmates are reportedly forced to relieve themselves in plastic bags and on their clothes because the police station did not have water.
 
SAHRC spokesperson, Victor Mavhidula, points out that, “We have not yet visited the police station. We will visit the police station and see if there is any other contingency plan that the management are implementing to assist the inmates. I think the situation is very serious if people are being locked up and they are not being provided with water and they cannot go to the toilet.”
