Ms Sultan refers to the case of Lars Hedegaard; he was convicted of the crime of saying, more or less, that Muslim men have no respect for women and often abuse young female relatives. The Danish censorship law makes it a crime to criticize a religious group even if the criticism is valid. In Denmark, honest discussion of that question is forbidden a priori.
Mother of eight-year-old victim still seeking justice for son's death - 28 April Estelle Sinkins, the mother of eight-year-old James Sinkins, who was mauled to death four months ago when their neighbour's two Alsations leapt over the garden fence and mauled the little boy was he was playing in his garden, says she and her husband will continue to fight for justice.
Estelle Sinkins confirmed on Friday that she had made representations to the office of the KZN director of prosecutions after a "really horrible experience" with the senior public prosecutor assigned to the case. Sinkins said she had requested a meeting with chief prosecutor Nonhlanhla Dlamini to discuss the "prosecutor's behaviour".
She had also written to the office of the KZN prosecutions director. Sinkins has also gone to the media and given a radio interview to publicise her pain and concerns.
Sinkins alleges that the prosecutor who visited them told her husband he was "concerned" that she would not make a good witness, that they could not prove the fence was unsafe, that Sinkins was "somehow negligent in the care of my son", and that they could not prove that it was their neighbour's dogs that attacked James.
He also allegedly discouraged them from pursuing a civil case, saying it would cost a lot and allegedly "hinted" it would impact on the couple's reputation if they lost. Sinkins said they were left with the "distinct impression" that the prosecutor was not keen to take the case to court.
Kara added that the chief prosecutor had sent the family an e-mail and intended to discuss the matter with them. She would also deal with the case in future. Mpho Mokoena was attacked by two adult Rottweilers and a bull mastiff in her backyard in Braithwaite Road, Montrose, just after 11am on Monday.
ER24's Russel Meiring said paramedics were unable to immediately come to Mokoena's aid as the dogs refused to move away from her bloodied body. Unfortunately, all of these efforts proved unsuccessful and two of the three dogs had to be put down by the police in order to get her Mokoena medical assistance", he said.
Emergency personnel eventually climbed over the palisade fence to help her, but she had already died from extensive injuries. Neighbours on Monday told of their shock at the incident, and described the dogs as "aggressive and troublesome". One neighbour revealed that the dogs had killed another dog in the area recently, and had also attacked their owner's gardener a few weeks before Monday's tragedy.
An inquest docket has been opened at the Townhill police station. He said his daughter who was the mother of a young child, had helped raise the three dogs ever since they were puppies and that she was responsible for feeding them every day. She went to Peterpan for 18 years and as a family we decided she stayed at home and looked after the house while we provide everything for her.
We had the dogs as puppies and she fed them always. We've owned three sets of dogs in the past including a set of female Rottweilers. These dogs were no threat to the family and we always made sure that dogs were secured especially when the gardeners are around", he said. The father believes that the dogs turned on the Mpho after she shouted at them for their aggressiveness towards the neighbour.
It is understood that the man had heard a loud barking outside and went to inspect. Outside he found two "pitbulls" attacking some chickens.
The dogs then apparently turned their attention on the man. On assessment, paramedics found that the man had sustained a number of serious bite wounds over his head, chest and arms. It is believed that the dogs were scared off when the police fired a warning shot. It is believed he was airlifted to a Durban hospital after medics took him to Grey's Hospital in the provincial capital.
Last weekend, two pit bulls mauled year-old Shaik Adam Hoosen on his way home from mosque in Phoenix. He was treated at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital. Cameron Grindell, who spoke exclusively to News24, said he had been walking his dogs around the neighbourhood.
He noticed his neighbour's gate was open. He saw the neighbour pulling out of her driveway and heard her screaming for her dog not to run out of the yard. Grindell's dog is an Africanis.
The woman managed to take control of the animal and got it back inside the house. She let the teen use her cellphone to call his mother before leaving him, bleeding, at the roadside. What was more of a concern to me was that she just got in her car and left", his mother, Adrienne Wulfsohn, a trauma doctor, said.
The young boy sustained injuries to his face and neck and died in hospital. The incident occurred at the weekend and the dog, a Labrador Retriever, was put down. A bull terrier bit his four-year-old son Eli in the face, a matter which is currently being settled in court.
Three days last week were set aside for the parties respective legal teams to get witnesses on record and prepare their cases for the Pretoria high court. Judge Johan Louw reserved his judgement, which means that it can be a few months before a verdict is reached.
Hoddy wrote about the incident on the Atlantic Seaboard Crime Watch Facebook page, where a number of group members criticised Lempereur, calling for the dog to be taken away from her.
