oa De Rebus - The right to a fair trial

 

Abstract

Section 35(3) of the Constitution entitles an accused person, in addition to a right to a speedy and public trial before an ordinary court of law, a right to adduce and challenge evidence. The rights under s 35(3) attract responsibilities on the court before which an accused appears, and bestow both positive and negative duties on the judicial officer, who should at all times remain vigilant and ensure that justice is entirely observed from the beginning to the conclusion of the trial.
