AfriForum welcomes heavy sentence for farm murderer

AfriForum welcomes the heavy sentence imposed on Jeffrey Thompson after being found guilty on 15 charges, among these the murder of Piet and Elmien Steyn of Bonnievale in December 2018. Thompson received two life sentences, as well as a further 58 years and six months after he had entered into a pleading and sentencing agreement with the State.

“We welcome the sentence. Thompson, who was out on bail, harassed the community over a long period of time through crime,” says Johandré van Zyl, AfriForum’s Head of Safety for the southern region.

“It should be investigated why and how Thompson was released on bail. These tragic murders constitute the destruction of a whole community’s well-being, future dreams and even hope,” says Ian Cameron, AfriForum’s Head for Community Safety.
