And the challenges lies therein in ensuring that the action which is taken on the ground mirrors those laudable goals that the legislation implores us to achieve. We have made numerous interventions in this regard. A number of ground-breaking and international best practice models against sexual offences have emerged from South African soil.
The Thuthuzela Care Centres and the Sexual Offences Courts stand out as one of the home-grown practice models that continue to spearhead global interventions against sexual violence. We must ensure that the services offered and the methodology used remain world-class. And we must ensure that we leave no one behind.
Our Department has also converted public education material for vulnerable groups into formats accessible to disabled court users, and these include audio booklets, braille, and large prints.
With rapid developments in technology, we must keep up with the times and our Department, in partnership with UNICEF, is currently conducting a study to determine the appropriate ways of reaching as many people as we can. With regards to the sexual violence at school that I alluded to earlier, the Gauteng Education MEC has stated that he is considering establishing a task team to deal with sexual abuse cases in the province and the South African Human Rights Commission has announced that it will work with other Chapter 9 institutions in combating sexual violence in schools.

The NPA has also advised that 19 additional posts of court preparation officers have been created to keep up with the increasing demand for these services at the newly- established sexual offences courts. There is also a need for a customised case management system that gives priority to cases of sexual offences, especially the ones that involve child victims. The rotation of the magistrates often leads to the delay in the finalisation of these cases, for example, part-heard matters usually take more time to be finalised when the magistrate has been rotated.
A current project, funded by USAID working with the office of the Chief Justice, is under way to develop a customised case-flow management system for these cases. Of course he was referring to the struggle against apartheid — but the central message is still applicable today. For how can we say that all are free when many of our people, particularly women and children, are not free to walk the streets of their community, not free to go to school or university without the risk of sexual violence, not free to travel as they wish on public transport because they are fearful?
Is that freedom at all? I want to salute every survivor of a sexual offence, every single person who has reported it, who has gone to seek help.
And, in particular, those who have spoken out, often in the face of fear. All of us in this room are crucial role-players in the criminal justice process and therefore this Forum is an enormous opportunity for us to ensure that the implementation of the Sexual Offences Act works.
