A CALL UPON INTERNATIONAL INTERVENTION FOR THE INJUSTICE OF THE BOEREMAG CASE

Boer prisoners - You are not forgotten • 24 Men are accused of high treason against the Republic of South Africa [South African Empire. Ed.] and have been imprisoned since 2002.
• More than 20 Boers have been subjugated in an exhausting court case for ten years.
• During the trial it was testified that Government agents and Police agent provocateurs played a prominent roll in planning, orchestrating and instigating the events leading to the events of this case.
• 11 of the accused are still imprisoned as “awaiting trial detainees” (for 10 years already), with bail repeatedly denied. They are kept under inhumane circumstances worse than convicted prisoners, for example: they are not allowed any contact visitation for the last ten years.
• The accused which bail were denied, appeared in front of black judges, whilst the bail was granted according to Law to those who appeared in front of white judges.
• Eight of the accused have been divorced since the commencement of the case. Two are deceased, whilst one is terminal ill.
• One of the accused is over the age of seventy and had a heart attack. He received a three vessel heart bypass, but bail was still denied thereafter.
• The case has once again been postponed (for four months) until 23rd July, 2012.

This case against these persons is an injustices act and an offence against humanity. It is taking place in South Africa which is a member of the UN’s Safety and Security Council.
The judicial principle, of a person being innocent until proven guilty does not seems to exist in this case.
The international community should take notice of this and insist on immediate rectification!
