In the previous Companies Act, No. 61 of 1973, Judicial Management was the vehicle whereby a Company could be managed by a Judicial Manager as an alternative to Insolvency. Chapter 6 of the new company legislation replaces Judicial Management with business rescue, a system whereby a business rescue practitioner is appointed to trade a business out of its financial difficulties to avoid liquidation.

Criminal Law is the branch of law governing an individual’s relationship with the state where the individual has transgressed or broken the law. It also encompasses the rights of the transgressor including his arrest, his plea to the charges, pre-trial hearings and meetings, trials, evidence and post-trial consultations & remedies.

The main purpose of the state in criminal trials is to punish the transgressor for his criminal offences. In South Africa, the state must prove that the accused is guilty beyond all reasonable doubt. In a Civil trial, however, the plaintiff’s burden of proof is a balance of probabilities.

Crimes can be categorised as misdemeanours punishable by fine such as traffic violations, and felonies that are offences that warrant the imprisonment of the accused for a period of time such as rape, murder and assault with a deadly weapon.
