Court judgment on Ahmed Timol welcomed – SACP

Party says it has always believed the underground operative was murdered and hopes the guilty will now face the music

ACP welcomes court judgment on Comrade Ahmed Timol

12 October 2017

The South African Communist Party welcomes the North Gauteng High Court judgment concluding that Ahmed Timol did not commit suicide but was murdered. This is an affirmation of the truth that the SACP has always believed.  The judgement paves the way for justice to run its full course. Those who committed the murder must now face the music and be held accountable in accordance with the rule of law.

The SACP unwaveringly supports the Timol family and will deepen its campaign towards a wider programme to seek justice for all. Everyone who was killed by or disappeared at the behest of the apartheid regime must be accounted for. The forces behind the crime against humanity, apartheid, must be held accountable!
