The Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act 12 of 2004 is published in both in English and Afrikaans in Government Gazette No. 26311, dated 28 April 2004, and came into operation on 27 April 2004. Section 34(2) - failing to report certain suspected, prescribed offences - came into operation on 31 July 2004. Said Act repeals the whole Corruption Act 94 of 1992 and amends a number of statutes, inter alia the insertion of a new section 269A (competent verdicts) in the Criminal Procedure Act 51 of 1977.
The provisions contained in the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act 12 of 2004 follow the trend of modern international legislation, namely the 'unbundling' of corruption in terms of which various specific corrupt actions and corrupt practices are defined and prohibited.
