n 2008, when the first edition of Organised Crime and Proceeds of Crime Law in South Africa was published, there were very few reported cases involving racketeering. The intervening time has seen more prosecutions for this crime and for other related crimes and consequently more relevant decisions have been given by our courts. In particular there are new judgments to consider on confiscation and forfeiture. In all, nearly a hundred new cases are referred to in this second edition. The commentary on corruption has been expanded because corruption is often a manifestation of racketeering.
Human trafficking is now the third largest industry in the world and is often committed by organised crime groups. The author has therefore included an outline of human trafficking. A brief discussion of police investigation and surveillance has been added as has a discussion on foreign restraint orders. Practical guidelines for the defence in racketeering prosecutions have also been included.
This book remains the only attempt to deal comprehensively with the Prevention of Organised Crime Act (POCA) and will continue to play a vital role in helping legal practitioners understand the complexities of the new concepts introduced by POCA.
