South African criminal law is the body of national law relating to crime in South Africa. In the definition of Van der Walt et al, a crime is “conduct which common or statute law prohibits and expressly or impliedly subjects to punishment remissible by the state alone and which the offender cannot avoid by his own act once he has been convicted.”
Crime involves the infliction of harm against society.
The function or object of criminal law is to provide a social mechanism with which to coerce members of society to abstain from conduct that is harmful to the interests of society.
