On 8 May 2012 the North Gauteng High Court handed down judgment in Southern Africa Litigation Centre & another v National Director of Public Prosecutions & others 2012 (10) BCLR 1089 (GNP) ('SALC v NDPP'). The case involved a review application under the Promotion of Administrative Justice Act 3 of 2000 ('PAJA') and the legality of the decision by the National Prosecuting Authority ('NPA'), on the advice of the South African Police Service ('SAPS' or 'the Police'), not to institute an investigation into a docket submitted to the NPA in March 2008 by the Southern Africa Litigation Centre ('SALC'). The docket contained allegations of crimes against humanity committed in Zimbabwe in 2007. On the basis of the docket the SALC had requested the NPA to investigate and, if necessary, prosecute the perpetrators under the Implementation of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court Act 27 of 2002 ('the ICC Act').
