Draft Identity Theft Reform Bill Released for SA

In a media release dated 5 February 2021, the SA Attorney-General, Vickie Chapman, announced that SA's identity theft laws "are set for an overhaul," to ensure SA legislation meets modern standards and can better target and prosecute perpetrators. According to the Attorney-General, the reforms are needed because since SA's identity theft laws were first introduced in 2003, the techniques used by perpetrators have changed, and the prevalence of identity theft crimes has grown.
