1. What does expungement of a criminal record mean?

Expungement of a Criminal record means that the record of the criminal record is sealed and the details are not revealed  in for example a “Police Clearance certificate”. For all practical purposes the offence can be handled as if it never happened. Legally you do not have to declare the offence unless asked.


2. Under which circumstances can a criminal record be expunged ?

 • Ten (10) Years has lapsed after the date of the conviction for that offence.

 • If The person has not been convicted of any other offence and sentenced to a period of imprisonment    without the option of a fine during those 10 years.

 • If the fine imposed did not exceed R 20,000

 • Was not convicted of a sexual offence against a child or a person who is mentally disabled,    and  whose name is not  included in the National Register for Sex Offenders.

 • Was not found unsuitable to work with children by a criminal court and my name is not Included in the    National Child Protection Register.

 • Was convicted on the base of race
