Durban - The DA Women’s Network has described the decision to strike the Baby G abuse off the court roll an "unfortunate miscarriage of justice" for the young victim.
The 25-year-old Phoenix mother was charged with attempted murder after a video of the child's abuse surfaced on social media in March 2018.
On Monday in the Verulam Magistrate's Court State Prosecutor Ishara Sewnarayan advised the court that they were still waiting for cellphone evidence to be sent from their cyber crime unit in Pretoria.
However Magistrate Jenny Pillay refused to adjourn the case once more and struck the matter off the roll provisionally.
In the video a woman is seen stomping on a child. Shortly after the incident the mother and her 20-year-old boyfriend were arrested. Both are out on bail.
