Stabbing victim cries out for justice (letter to the editor)

Dear Editor: It’s going to be two years I’m going to court for a guy who stabbed me on the 13th of November 2015.

He was arrested and placed on bail a week after stabbing me. I’ve been suffering in pain and finances while he lives a normal life.

The guy and his family meet me and threaten me on a daily occasion. I’ve made many reports to the police with nothing of substance materialising from it, but bringing the guy to a next court case and having multiple adjournments.

I was a skilled worker but had to leave it because of my injury and now I’m working for a bit off minimum wage when I have my medical bills to pay.

I have to eat and drink like a normal human being which is from pay cheque to pay cheque while my attacker lives a normal life and still threatening me.

Something needs to be done quickly about the justice system because I have a level of tolerance just as everyone, but it’s running out.

If I was to retaliate I’m sure that there would have been a different story to this.

I’m pleading that there would be some light and justice to my case. I’m not perfect but my life matters.

  4. Well, I hope the authorities will read your letter and some good Samaritan lawyer will offer to help you, there are still lots of good people around and I pray that very soon someone will offer to help.

    To God be the glory.

My dear my heart goes out to you am going through the same situation my son was stabbed and killed by a guy ,the guy was just released from the station no bail,no charge , no nothing every time I go to the police station is the same story , if I wasn't a praying woman I probably had already taken my own course of action.
