So far, no arrest has been made. The fisherman who killed the sharks is free to go about his business but will certainly not touch any sharks in the MPA - at least not while the case against him is pending.
Friends of mine wanted to see, and photograph, the corpus delicti (frozen and locked) but were denied access to the tiger shark carcasses that have been confiscated a few weeks ago.
We all hope that the culprit will be convicted to the full extent of the law. The judges have a unique chance to use this case to show that they mean 'business' when they read out the sentence. That message should resonate throughout South Africa, and beyond.
