13 Mar Treatment of celebrity cases by the police

Last week, the police in South Africa found themselves inundated with cases involving well known celebrities. Some have criticised their treatment of these cases especially because they involve celebrities. So on the programme today we look at the treatment of celebrity cases by the police, are the police under pressure to be seen to be doing their job due to the high reporting of these cases by the media?

To help us with this discussion we are now joined on the line by:
Dr Chris de Kock an independent crime analyst with Crime Facts South Africa.
Lisa Vetten is a mellon doctoral candidate at Wits City Institute with the University of the Witwatersrand.
Selby Xinwa a researcher at the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation.
