On International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, 26 June 2015, Khulumani expresses concern at the growing prevalence in the country of the use of torture as a police investigative method

June 26 is not only International Day in Support of Victims of Torture but also the anniversary of the Freedom Charter, a human rights declaration adopted in 1955 at the Congress of the People gathering at Freedom Square, in Kliptown, Soweto.

The Freedom Charter declares that All Shall Enjoy Equal Human Rights. The Charter proclaims a vision of a country where peoples' homes are protected by law from police raids in which the privacy, dignity and security of persons were violated as an all-too-common feature of apartheid police raids.  

Khulumani Participates in Marking World Refugee Day in Cape Town on Friday, 19 June 2015

In an interview on Radio 786 this morning, Khulumani's Director, Dr. Marjorie Jobson expressed concern that South Africans generally seem not to understand that a refugee is just another human being who has had to flee political persecution of war, and who has a right in terms of international law to be protected and to be provided with social assistance while living in our midst in our communities.

Khulumani expresses serious concern at the defiance demonstrated by the South African government in surreptitiously orchestrating the departure of Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir in violation of the order of the country's High Court

As Transitional Justice advocate Howard Varney warns, "The brazen defying of the Bashir court order has profound implications for all South Africans, in particular victims of past crimes. It also has far reaching implications for the practice of transitional justice more generally. It is quite apparent that the government has no intentions of complying with its international treaty obligations and was and is probably bent on undermining the fight against impunity."

Apartheid security cop Lieutenant Steve Whitehead, who was found responsible for struggle activist Neil Aggett's death and now faces a possible murder rap, has scored millions of rands doing intelligence work for the South African Revenue Service.

This is revealed in secret documents of the SARS rogue spy unit and a payment schedule obtained by the Sunday Times.
