MIE offers assistance to candidates for the expungement of criminal records for minor crimes.
 
What is expungement? Expungement is the removal of a person's criminal record who has previously been convicted of an offence. Criminal records which are considered for expungement include:
*  Those which have been in existence for a minimum of 10 years with               no subsequent convictions, followed by the option of paying a fine of less than     R20,000;
*  Offences considered to be of a trivial nature and crimes for which the     punishment is no longer constitutional; and
*  When an individual was told that paying a fine would not result in a criminal     record and have since discovered the existence of such a record.

The effect of the expungement of a criminal record is that the conviction falls away and is deemed to have never occurred.

Contact MIE for more information regarding this new service offering.
Date effective: 15 August 2015
