You face 20 years jail time for taking unlawful pics of national key points

9 June 2016 1:26 PM

Phumudzo Rapea, from the Saps, says if you take pictures of national key points for unlawful purposes you'll be arrested.

Phumudzo Rapea, acting secretary for the South African Police Service (Saps), says if you take pictures of national key points for unlawful purposes you will be arrested.

The maximum sentence for taking unlawful pictures of key points is 20 years.

This is according to the new proposal of the Bill that will replace National Key Points Act.

If you take pictures for unlawful purposes then you will be arrested.

He says if you take a picture of 'critical infrastructure' like a prison and inmates escape by using your pictures then you will be arrested.

No 20 years is not a drastic proposal but we have published the bill for comments so that those who want to comment can add their voice.
