Targeting the Homeless - South African Rights Body Seeks Answers
The SA Human Rights Commission has called for an urgent meeting with City of Cape Town officials over enforced street by-laws that have resulted in a number of homeless people being fined. Those who start or keep a fire in a public place can be fined up to U.S.$106. Obstructing pedestrian traffic on a pavement with any object or motor vehicle could attract a fine of U.S.$21, as does sleeping in a stationary motor vehicle in a public place.
