A response to the continued attack on the judiciary.
In 1972, the then Prime Minister, B.J. Vorster, appointed the Schlebusch Commission to investigate four anti-apartheid civil society organisations. There was no charge sheet, witnesses were unaware of other evidence given, and people being summoned to appear before the Commission did so without being afforded any of the Common Law niceties. In 1974, the National Union of South African Students and in 1975 the Christian Institute were declared ‘affected organisations’ and their foreign funding cut off.
