Case Closed: Justice Served is a new local crime and investigation series that exposes and investigates various crimes in South Africa. The show celebrates the servants of the law who work hard to bring criminals to justice.
The 13 parts series will revelaed chilling stories from across South Africa, tackling crimes including murder, heists, robbery, rape, financial crimes and drug trafficking. Viewers will be guided through a step-by-step examination of each crime, the unfolding of a case, how the perpetrator was captured and its conclusion. They will also hear the horrific tale of each case from the perspective of those affected by and involved in the crime. Each case is meticulously re-enacted – in some cases, by those who were directly involved, including the investigating officers from the SAPS. The actual presiding judges and legal teams from both the defence and the prosecution also weigh in on the show giving viewers the most accurate representation of the case at hand.
“The channel made a conscious decision to ensure that through the exploration of the harsh realities of crimes committed in our society, there is a silver lining in that each case examined throughout the series has been concluded, with the perpetrators arrested, found guilty and sentenced. The show emphases the successes of our criminal justice system to help restore faith where much has been eroded in South Africans,” says Ziyanda Mngomezulu, GM of e.tv Local Content.
