Cape Town – e.tv is adding Case Closed: Justice Served from Monday 15 January at 22:00 as a new local crime and investigation series of 13 episodes exploring real-life South African crime cases.
The 13-episode Case Closed: Justice Served will give viewers insight into local crime-solving and investigation stories.
Case Closed: Justice Served will unpack chilling real-life crime stories from across South Africa, tackling crimes including murder, heists, robbery, rape, financial crimes and drug trafficking.
The show will take viewers through the step-by-step examination of each crime, how the case unfolded, how the perpetrator was captured and its conclusion.
Viewers will hear the horrific tale of each case from the perspective of those affected by and involved in the crime.
According to e.tv each case is meticulously re-enacted – in some cases, by those who were directly involved, including the investigating officers from the South African Police Service.
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,” says Ziyanda Mngomezulu, the general manager of e.tv local content.
“The show emphases the successes of our criminal justice system to help restore faith where much has been eroded in South Africans”.
