Apartheid victims have demanded that the state honour its reparations obligations to everyone and not just those identified by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).
In a briefing in Johannesburg, the South African Coalition for Transitional Justice (SACTJ) states that, "We reject regulations which fail to provide the full gambit of reparations needed... as a result of apartheid atrocities."
Meanwhile, representing the Khulumani Support Group, Paul Verryn, pleaded with government to reconsider the regulations. He maintains: "We affirm the mammoth and miraculous work that was achieved by the TRC... but we are saying that many more qualify... there was almost no consultation with the people who really matter."
