CAPE TOWN - A Cape Town family is taking the South African Police Service to court after what it claims are repeated incidents of police brutality.
The couple’s house in the gang-infested suburb of Elsies River has allegedly been raided more than 20 times over the past two years.
SAPS members have seemingly used brutal tactics to interrogate inhabitants.
The latest incident has been caught on CCTV.
According to Natasha Bruwers, the police began bashing through their front walls and kicking down the doors in August 2013.
She claims they didn’t have search warrants and have never found anything illegal on the premises.
Several raids later, the Bruwers installed security cameras.
The cameras caught the following incident on film.
Ipid&39;s head office says several incidents will now be investigated dating back to 2013.
Bruwers intends suing the SAPS for damages and applying for an urgent interdict preventing the unit from entering her premises without a search warrant.
