Prosecutors are not allowed to set an admission of guilt amount if the summons state NAG ( no admission of guilt).

They can decide to withdraw the matter though.

The PP is friends with the right people so he/she can certainly do that, albeit under the table.

Hi

If the magistrate gives you a fine, does it mean you get a criminal record? Meaning...is paying a fine at court seens as a admission of guilt?

Thanks

Yes, they do, after 18 months if no summons was issued.
Would love to know where the law states this that we can show to the scummy govt .

We have a fleet of vehicles and in the past few months, fines have been loaded against vehicles we had , that were incurred as early as 2014. Most of the drivers are no longer in the employ of the company. And in terms of aarto, gonna be difficult to allocate to them too.

We have had to pay them all because in South Africa , the stupid rules and systems mean all fleet vehicles get allocated to a single person and he/she is on the hook at all roadblocks, etc. We could not get vehicle license renewals because of this too.

Edit to say: fines as old as 2014 were loaded all across the country so it's not just a specific municipality.
