Good morning

My brother was beaten by the arresting officer in the presence of my mother and the arresting officer wrote that my brother was violent towards him or refusing arrest which is a lie because I was there and they woke my brother up early in the morning and he willingly went with them, the prosecutor was friends with the complaintant who framed and lied about my brother accusing him of stealing his cell phone at gun point and till today the alleged weapon has not be retrieved because it was never there. Now my brother is being denied any appeals he makes against his 36years sentence and his parole are also being denied, the complaintant was my brother's friend, how can I assist my brother with this case?

Hi there,

I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment, even if it is R150 or R200.

Was your brother found guilty in a court of law? Was he represented by legal aid or a private lawyer? Did he appeal the finding at the high court?
