Nicoleen Swart endured repeated assaults at her husband’s workplace – some of her horrific attacks caught on CCTV camera. She waited years for her day in court, to bring Jaco Swart to book on charges of domestic abuse. But upon her first day in court, Jaco pleaded guilty and was released with a mere suspended sentence and R20 000 fine. So, why were the videos never put before court? Carte Blanche tracks the descent of a relationship documented in living colour, uncovering the roots of a man who’s become the face of law enforcement’s failures on gender-based violence.
