Ahmed Timol murder case back in court on Monday


Former security policeman, Joao Rodrigues, is back in court on Monday 15th October 2018 on charges relating to the 1971 murder of anti-apartheid activist Ahmed Timol. He’s expected to apply for a stay of prosecution based on his age and that the murder happened too long ago for justice to take its course. The family of another activist Matthews Mabelane, who also died at John Vorster Square in 1977, are following the case closely. Just like Timol – an inquest claimed Mabelane took his own life by jumping from the 10th floor.
