On 29 August 2018 the South African Human Rights Commission (‘The Commission’) was made aware of looting and violent attacks on foreign-owned shops in Soweto and other areas around Gauteng. It soon emerged that these incidents were sparked by allegations that foreign-owned shops were selling fake and/or expired goods to the public. Thus, the Commission will investigate the possible human rights violations that arose as a result of the alleged manufacture and sale of fake and/or expired goods.

In order to obtain clarity, the Commission will hold an inquiry into the matter. The Commission seeks to test the veracity of the allegations in order to determine whether fake and/or expired goods are being sold to the public and thus threatening the health and safety and human rights of residents of the Gauteng Province.
