Wits Justice Project scores a hat-trick

For the third year in a row, the Wits Justice Project has been awarded the prestigious Webber Wentzel Legal Journalist of the Year Award.

This year, our journalist, Paul McNally won in the radio broadcast category for his story, ‘Drug withdrawal in remand detention’ which aired on community radio station, Thetha FM.

The judges noted the piece was “a dramatic example of what can be achieved via collaboration between a community radio station and an established institution.” Read more of the judges’ comments here, and listen to the podcast here.

    An excellent documentary. Factual, sensitive, without being sentimental. Sharply brought home the brutal reality of the senseless death of this young man.
