A court in Paris will on Wednesday hear the final arguments in the case to determine whether or not France should have provided struggle activist, Dulcie September, with protection before her assassination in the city in 1988.

September, who hailed from Cape Town, was forced into exile in the 70s and was the ANC’s chief representative in France.

No one has been held accountable for the assassination.
