Update on assault case

Captain Ntombi Lindipasi, Wynberg police spokesperson 

There have since been developments with Marlon Goliath’s case, (“‘Beaten up’ by law enforcement,” Bulletin, July 4). 

According to our records, Mr Goliath’s arrest happened just after he had been released from prison. He had two convictions already. 

He opened a case of common assault against those two law enforcement officers.

The necessary statement was obtained from the two officers and the matter was presented to the senior public prosecutor, and she declined to prosecute due to insufficient evidence.
