CLEAR YOU’RE CRIMINAL RECORD


Did you made a stupid mistake in the past that led you to have a criminal record?

Does your criminal record prevent you to obtain work or get a promotion at work?


The expungement or presidential pardon of your criminal record is the answer

 

Expungement

The expungement of a criminal record is a process whereby a person can have his/her criminal record expunged from the national criminal register.

KINDLY NOTE for an individual to have their criminal record expunged that the following basic requirements have to be met in order to qualify for Expungement of your Record: 

The Record:

MUST

be older than 10 Years or even older 

AND 

No direct imprisonment was imposed 

AND 

the Fine imposed not exceeded R 20 000-00 (Twenty Thousand Rand) and 

NO 

other offences was committed in the last ten (10) years.

It must also be noted that if an offence is of a sexual nature and a child was involved, the perpetrator’s name will be included in the National Register for Sexual Offender (NRSO). If the victim was a disabled person, this will automatically disqualify a person from having their criminal record expunged. 

Over a period of ten (10) years, a person should not have been sent to prison for another offence. If an offence is of a sexual nature and a child was involved, the perpetrator’s name will be included in the National Register for Sexual Offender (NRSO). 

If the victim was a disabled person, this will automatically disqualify a person from having their criminal record expunged.

Applications for expungement of diversions in terms of the Child Justice Act, 2008 (Act No 75 of 2008), can also be done.

 Presidential Pardon

Serious cases where the sentence is one of imprisonment without the option of a fine, such as robbery, rape, murder and assault with the intention to do grievously bodily harm.

A presidential pardon is a complete forgiveness of the crime of which the party being pardoned was convicted. According to our constitution the decision to pardon or not can be taken only by the South African president
