The Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (Casac) executive secretary, Lawson Naidoo, says there must an independent oversight of the burglary investigation at the Office of Chief Justice.
He says this is needed given the lack of faith in the law and policing order.
Fifteen computers containing important and sensitive information of the country's top judges were stolen in the early hours of Saturday in Midrand.
The theft comes in the midst of important court cases involving government officials, including High Court's decision to set aside the appointment of Berning Ntlemeza as Hawks head.
The ConCourt also ruled that Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini and the South Africa Social Security Agency (Sassa) failed to handle the social grants matter accordingly.
Institute for Security Studies' Gareth Newham says the burglary was not an ordinary crime by people stealing for financial gain.
It would have had to be very well planned. It would have to know how to get to the building, which route to take and which security system is in place to be able to overcome them.— Gareth Newham, Institute for Security Studies
The computers that were taken were on the first floor, only relating to human resources. And all computers on the ground floor, which burglars would have had to walk pass relating to finance were not touched.— Gareth Newham, Institute for Security Studies
He says if it was just a normal crime to steal computers they would have gone for computers on the ground floor only.
It looks like it was not an ordinary burglary in order to steal computers for financial gain.— Gareth Newham, Institute for Security Studies
