Question posted in the Criminal Law category relating to Western Cape

Good morning, 

Between 2006-2008, I don't recall which year I was involved in an accident. I was driving home over Ou Kaapse weg at around 8pm. There was a person in the road which I hit and he was killed instantly. I was arrested and granted bail. A some point later, I don't recall when I went back to court at which time the case was struck from the roll.

In 2010 I left South Africa and I have not been back since.

I would like to return next year for a holiday but I would like to know if there is any chance this case would have been reinstated after all this time?

Is there anyway to check this

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.

Unfortunately, the only way to check is for you to apply, in person, at a SAPS station, for a police clearance certificate to see if there is anything outstanding on your name.
