On Wednesday 17th January 2024, the day after my questionnaire book had been delivered to the Judicial Service Commission I received an SMS notification on my phone from the police to tell me that my case regarding Venter had been closed. 

The Senior Public Prosecutor at the Cape Town Magistrate's Court had decided to withdraw the case.

I responded immediately by appealing to the Director of Public Prosecutions to bring Venter to justice.

I also contacted the Public Protector and the Human Rights Commission and called upon them to help me.

On Monday 22nd of January 2024 I sent by hand courier to the Judicial Service Commission 2 pages of supplementary notes to be added to my appeal which is published below.
