So. Africa: Marikana cops may have noted vital info

Author: news 24 (So. Africa), Published on: 16 May 2013

Potentially critical information could be contained in the pocket-books of officers deployed to Marikana during last year's wage-related unrest, the Farlam Commission on Inquiry heard on Thursday. Major General Charl Annandale said the officers had different ways of logging entries in their pocket-books. A typical entry would have information on the post they held on a particular day, and the type of vehicle and firearm in their possession, Annandale said...Nokukhanya Jele, for the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC), said they learnt that many of the officers deployed to Marikana kept pocket-books. Jele told the commission they had experienced difficulties in retrieving them from the SA Police Service (SAPS). "We have been making requests for these pocket-books since 18 January," said Jele. The commission, chaired by retired Judge Ian Farlam, is investigating the deaths of 44 people in Lonmin's wage-related unrest last year. Police shot dead 34 striking mineworkers in Marikana on 16 August.
