The review period covered in this contribution is mid-2016 until the end of April 2018 (the preceding update was M Reyneke ‘Child Justice: recent cases’ (2016) 29 SACJ 376). April 2018 marks 10 years into the implementation of the Child Justice Act 75 of 2008. The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development has recently (in early 2018) appointed a service provider to review the implementation of the Act, the findings of which will hopefully illuminate the successes and failures related to implementation. Current information on the implementation of the Act is limited to Departmental annual reports, the last of which was tabled in 2016/7.
