The ClearMe App – 8,000 users and counting

Having a criminal record is a significant barrier to a decent life for many South Africans, an injustice made more odious by the inefficiencies of the official administration and the arbitrariness of how anyone can end up with a record. Since the launch of the ClearMe App a year ago, Freedoms SA reports that there have been over 8000 users seeking information. There are also renewed advocacy efforts for policy change at the Department of Justice and South African Police Services. You can access the app here.
