Northern Cape SAPS Management welcomes #sentence handed down to killer, rapist
Northern Cape: The Northern Cape Police Management welcomed 22 years imprisonment handed down on George Hoorniet by the Northern Cape High Court. Hoorniet has been convicted and sentenced for the murder and rape of a 20-year-old woman, which he committed last year June. The victim’s half naked body was found by a passer-by near a local reservoir in Strydenburg.
“We are satisfied with the minimum sentences handed down to the convict, harsh imprisonment sentences shall send a strong message to the criminals”, said Lieutenant General Peter Shivuri. He commended the National Prosecuting Authority, Department of Justice and the investigating officer for working together by ensuring that Hoorniet was convicted for crimes he committed.
