Nokuthula Simelane’s presumption of death case
Legal Costs case in the murder prosecution relating to Nokuthula Simelane
Thembi Nkadimeng’s intervention in the legal costs case relating to the Nokuthula Simelane murder prosecution:
Nkadimeng v. the National Director of Public Prosecutions and Others (T.P.D. Case No. 3554/2015), Gauteng Division of the High Court of South Africa.
The family of Nokuthula Simelane (abducted, murdered and disappeared by the Security Branch in 1983) sought a court order to compel the prosecuting authority to decide whether or not to prosecute the known suspects. In this application political interference in the TRC cases was confirmed by Vusi Pikoli, the former national director of public prosecutions and Anton Ackermann, the former head of the PCLU. The matter was settled out of court when the then NDPP, Shaun Abrahams, decided to prosecute the suspects.
 Nkadimeng v. the National Director of Public Prosecutions and Others (T.P.D. Case No. 3554/2015), Gauteng Division of the High Court of South Africa.
