S v. Strowitzki 1995 (2) SA 525 Nm HC

Hannah J:

Although constitutional rights were often referred to as civil rights, this meant no more than that they were the personal rights of the individual citizen. It did not mean that they fell to be dealt with exclusively by way of civil proceedings. Simply because a constitutional issue was involved did not mean that the proceedings were converted from criminal to civil proceedings.
