THE STATE WITHDRAWS CHARGES AGAINST JONATHAN DAVIDS (Anene Boysen’s case)
The State has withdrawn charges against Jonathan Davids after a thorough investigative process. Davids was arrested after he was implicated in the rape and murder of Anene Booysen. The investigation revealed that there was insufficient evidence to secure a conviction. The State will continue with its case against accused two, Johannes Kana. The matter has been postponed to 3rd June 2013 for plea proceedings in terms of Section 119 of the Criminal Procedure Act. We understand the sense of shock and outrage that was induced by the incident, however, as the prosecution we can only prosecute successfully on sufficient evidence.
