He Was Murdered but Culprits Are Dead, Court Rules

Ahmed Timol Inquest

Judge Billy Mothle is delivering his judgment in the inquest into the death of anti-apartheid activist Ahmed Timol while he was in the custody of security branch police.

"Rodrigues, in his own version, participated in the cover-up to hide the crime of murder as an accessory-after-the-fact, and went on to commit perjury by presenting contradictory evidence before the 1972 and 2017 inquests".

Judge Mothle recommended charges against Joao Rodrigues, who police argued, was the last person to see Timol alive.

Anti-apartheid activist Ahmed Timol was murdered, ruled the Pretoria High Court in a unique inquest on Thursday, overturning a 1972 ruling that he committed suicide while in detention in 1971.

"Rodrigues on his own version participated in the cover-up to hide the crime of murder as an accessory after the fact and went on to commit perjury by presenting contradictory evidence before the 1972 and the 2017 inquest. He should accordingly be investigated with a view to his prosecution". An inquest found that the South African Communist Party member was murdered after his arrest and transfer to a Johannesburg police station, where opponents of white minority rule were often held without trial and tortured.
