Hi there ,
not sure if you got my response . Please let me know otherwise i will respond again.
Happy to see the response about the offense as a 15 year old.
The offense in South africa was called Crimen Injuria (obstructing /hindering /interfering with a police officer.
The background is that the cop was hiding ready to catch motorists who were driving straight on at a intersection when you had to turn right go down a little way and turn around and come back and then turn left. I was on foot and engaged in conversation with him saying how silly it was that you just couldnt drive straight on.
He got a little upset and then said i swore at him. I didn't but he arrested me and put me in his car. On the way to the police station he turned to me and said " you can make this go away". In south africa that means you can offer a bribe. And because he was afrikannse he made it clear he didn't like me as i was english. I stayed silent and was taken to the police where i was finger printed and charged. I spent a few hours in the cells. I appeared in court a few days later and after spending 4 hours waiting for my case to come up it was over in a matter of seconds . I was convicted and fine R500 (about $70 ). I did nt have anyone represent me legally and i didn't mention anything about the bribe as it was his word against mine..
All i have from the South african Police is the Police certificate stating when it took place and the outcome with the fine listed . As far as getting a police report - its africa!!!!!
Its not quite the real world. I am very happy that both are in your view very minor and should not be a case to be denied . I am going to be honest at the interview when it takes place and hopefully they view both as you have done....
I have official documents from the South african police service signed by a lieutenant of the police with a stamped seal and a wax seal.
It's all very official .
If i have any more questions i will ask you.
I will ... many thanks.
Late here so going to sleep now . Have a great evening,
