Rammoko v Director of Public Prosecutions (2002) 4 All SA 731 (SCA)

Main Issue: Appellant challenging life imprisonment for the conviction of rape of a girl.

Findings: Because the court a quo had failed to consider the age of the complainant, the degree of the seriousness of the rape, because it was not only the duty only of the State to adduce such evidence, the presiding officer could, in the interest of justice, also call for such. Accordingly the Court remitted to the court a quo for reconsideration.
