Question posted in the Family Law category relating to Gauteng
Good Day, My name is Atlegang Carlton Shirenda. I'm 20 years old and I have a protection order that was set up against me by my uncle whom I've assaulted verbally and physically. I signed the protection order which means I agreed to what he says I did. But he chose to close the case. As time went by, he assaulted me as well and I got a protection order against him which was granted by the court although he doesn't want to sign it so the police advised me to get a warrant of arrest for him. My question is that can he re open the case against me if I get him arrested?
