Minister's Mbandla's Amicus Curiae undermines international human rights agenda

Khulumani Support Group, the membership organisation of around 44,000 victims and survivors of apartheid-era gross human rights violations in South Africa, was assisted to bring the case to the appropriate court in New York in support of their demands for accountability and for redress. For thousands of victims, there remains little to celebrate in this year of the tenth anniversary of the country’s much-respected Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Legal challenge: Prosecution Policy is unconstitutional

Sister of Nokuthula Simelane and the widows of the Cradock Four as well as Khulumani Support Group, The Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR), and The International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) have launched proceedings in the Pretoria High Court to challenge the validity of amendments to the National Prosecution Policy dealing with apartheid-era crimes.

Khulumani Wins Lawsuit Appeal !

Khulumani Support Group welcomes the long-awaited decision of the New York circuit court of Appeal to reverse the finding of the district court on its Alien Tort Statute claim (Khulumani et al v. Barclays et al). The court held that liability of corporations for aiding and abetting the perpetration of gross human rights abuses does exist and that it can be pled under the statute. The Alien Tort Statute (ATCA) allows for people anywhere in the world to make claims against United States-based corporations that have caused damage to those people. It must be noted that the businesses listed in the lawsuit chose not to appear before the TRC.
