A GRIP SUCCESS STORY
Two Mbombela rape cases that GRIP has been involved with have recently been finalised, resulting in a double life sentence for the perpetrator. GRIP supported the survivors during their ordeal.
GRIP works closely with the Criminal Justice System and supported the victims in this case from first point of contact that involves statement taking and PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis) treatment, through to conducting home visits and ensuring completion of PEP treatment. Survivors also underwent court preparation and training to ensure that they were fit to give evidence in court thus resulting in guilty verdicts and sentencing.
