The Western Cape High Court has granted the NPA leave to appeal a judgment that prevented a man from being sentenced for forcibly fondling a woman.

The NPA will now approach the Supreme Court of Appeal.

The Riversdale Magistrate’s Court in the Southern Cape found earlier this month that a flaw in the Sexual Offences Act meant that there was no penalty for the behaviour of the accused.

Other offences without a penalty include sexual assault and consensual sexual acts with children.
