19 March 2017 - Parliament is disturbed by the news of the break-in at the offices of the Chief Justice, in which at least 15 computers were stolen. Such acts of criminality must be a source of grave concern and shock to those who value our constitutional democracy and its attendant sacrosanct structures, which are its lifeblood. Criminality of this nature not only undermines the functioning of our judicial system, which serve as the foremost interpreter and implementer of our country's laws and the constitution, but also attacks our shared values as a nation.
Parliament urges the police to leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the perpetrator(s) of this act face the full might of the law.
