Good Day

The SAPS has listed me on the wanted list on their website.

They have issued a j50 warrant of arrest for me as well but never even tried to contact me I have no previous convictions and they are saying I need to appear before a magistrate.

Are there any laws that can protect my privacy here and get this removed from their website as Im sure they made no effort to contact me and just issued this?
