AHMED TIMOL WAS MURDERED 46 YEARS AGO TODAY - Statement from the Ahmed Timol Family Trust

Some details remain hidden but official record books have been set straight

Today we commemorate the day, 46 years ago, that apartheid security police stopped assaulting our beloved brother and uncle, Ahmed Timol, and either pushed him out of the 10th floor window or off the roof of John Vorster Square Police Station.

We don’t know whether he was alive when he fell, or what time of day it was. The evidence of the only living “eyewitness”, former Sergeant Joao Rodrigues, who claimed to have been alone in the room when Timol committed suicide, was dismissed as a pack of lies by Judge Billy Mothle who presided over the recently concluded re-opened inquest.
