​NGO Not Concerned About de Klerk Charges

The FW de Klerk Foundation says it is not at all concerned with the 22 charges of apartheid crimes pressure group Anti-Racism Action Forum (ARAF) has formulated against him.

The foundation’s communications officer Megan Dick says they have taken note of the anti-racism group’s intent to lay 22 charges against apartheid-era president FW de Klerk for ‘crimes against black people’.

ARAF intend to lay the same charges against Adrian Vlok, who served as minister of law and order from 1986 to 1991.

Rights Lawyer Slam Xenophobia

Human rights advocate, George Bizos, says it is unbelievable that a country like South Africa, which had fought against inequality and hatred, could show such cruelty.

Bizos was quoted as saying that, "The xenophobic attacks... have shocked many South Africans, me included," during his keynote address on a discussion on ethics at the University of South Africa.

Bizos adds that many African countries had supported the struggle and good relationships had been maintained with those countries as South Africa entered democracy.
