If you have been threatened do do anything or to refrain from doing something or else, then you are being extorted and you can lay criminal charges by simply going to your nearest SAPS office where they will take your affidavit and open a case.
The SAPS will then investigate and approach the guilty party to get his version in writing whereafter the case docket will be presented to a public prosecutor to decide if they are going to charge the wrongdoer.
If he is charged, he will appear in court where a trial will be held and you will have to testify if he pleads not guilty. The SAPS will subpoena you to appear in court before the trial date.
I trust that this answered your question. If you have a follow up question, I will only be able to reply later so please be patient.
