The Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Amendment Act 32 of 2007 consolidates, codifies and amends South Africa’s laws dealing with sexual offences. The Act has brought the law on sexual offences in line with the Constitution and has also created a substantial number of new offences.   This section-by-section commentary covers all the new offences and changes to the laws of evidence and procedure introduced by the Act, including those relating to children and people with disabilities. Written and edited by leading scholars and practitioners and reviewed by criminal law and criminal procedure experts, it combines legal analysis with hands-on knowledge of the management of sexual offences in the criminal justice system. The contributors to this commentary provide unique insights into the potential, the challenges and the limitations of the new sexual offences legislation.
