Fast-Track Courts to Resolve Tourist-Related Crime Issues

In anticipation of a high incidence of crimes committed against tourists during the World Cup, the South African government is preparing to fast-track criminal hearings during the tournament to resolve issue before tourist leave the country.

A total of 54 courts will operate in the nine World Cup host cities.

The justice ministry says if any foreigners are involved in crimes, as victims or perpetrators, their cases will receive priority.
