Good day

I was recently charged for breaking curfew regulations, Due to some car problems on the 25th July 2021I was caught outside my residence  at about 10:15 pm outside and the police arrested me and I spend the night at a holding cell, the next morning my fingerprints were taken and I was told to go to court two days later. On arrival in court all covid19 offenders were called to the courtroom and we were informed that our cases were dismissed. My worry now is that I recently has a success interview for employment and I will receive vetting forms soon, I would like to find out about the possibility of a dismissed case appearing on my criminal check and whether if I should disclose my arrest in the form or not?

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.

If the case against you was withdrawn, then nothing should appear on your criminal record.
