Many people suggest "let them rot". We agree that if a crime has been committed and the trial has been fair, then yes, a prison sentence should be served. There are approximately 1300 South African citizens currently serving prison sentences in foreign countries, most on drug related charges.
DID YOU KNOW, at this time there are tens of thousands of Foreigners from more than 90 countries serving time in South African prisons?
THIS IS COSTING SA'S TAX PAYER R470,000,000
(Four hundred and seventy million Rand) annually to incarcerate them.
SEND THE FOREIGNERS HOME. IF SOUTH AFRICA IS REALLY SERIOUS ABOUT CRIME, IT IS TIME TO SIGN THIS P.T.A. AND DEPORT AND BAN FOR LIFE ANY FOREIGNERS WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THEIR ARREST. This would cause immediate relief on our over-crowded prisons.
WE TAX PAYERS ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THIS MISAPPROPRIATION OF OUR FUNDS.
The P.T.A. document is in place, lacking only signatures from the SA Government.
We are calling for the return of our Citizens under Extradition and the deportation of foreigners.
If you are a taxpayer and oppose this waste of money please sign our petition to bring this into effect. Click here to sign the petition
