Kill Boer – Malema trial: massive intimidation
9 May 2011 Leave a comment
An alleged witness in the Malema hatespeech trial was arrested last week; the Transvaal Agricultural uníon advocate’s family is in hiding because of death threats, attempt to kill daughter; Afrikaners intimidated by a wall of hate-speech screamers… and Malema’s private guards’ illegal display of AK47s is terrifying witnesses …
Massive intimidation tactics are being used by the ruling ANC-regime to influence the outcome of the Malema hatespeech trial at the Equality court in Johannesburg, which continues on 19 May. Malema already was found guilty of hatespeech at the same court last year with costs: this trial is his appeal to get the previous ruling overturned. The ANC’s main tactic: to stop witnesses from testifying. Last week, one witness was reportedly quietly arrested in Casseldale, Springs.
‘Die white man – viva Malema’ shouted the farm-attackers:
This working-class Afrikaner witness could describe a personal ordeal: when he and his family were attacked in April last year by four armed black men, these thugs had reportedly screamed: “Die white man, viva Malema’. One of the attackers was shot dead by one of the six victims. The arresting police-officer made a point of noting that ‘Boeremag documentation” and an ‘illegal arms cache’ were found during the arrest. I confirmed with the family that his personal computer was also confiscated. It’s important to know that the Boeremag is not illegal; and that ownership of such documentation is neither proof of membership, nor illegal. But the stage has now been set to discredit this testimony if necessary. It’s a win-win situation: if his testimony is not presented, the intimidation would have worked.
Illegal gun-toting of Malema body guards make him look like Idi Amin
Meanwhile one must also question why the police have not also arrested those AK47-toting Malema body guards – private security guards are not allowed to display weaponry publicly, by law. There has been widespread criticism in the news media, with Beeld commenting that the body-guards ‘made Malema look like the notorious deposed Ugandan murderer-dictator Idi Amin’.
So with all this bad press, why do the ANC still continue with this tactic? The judge even had to order them removed from his courtroom…but did not mention anything about the intimidation-effect outside which this aggressive display of powerful attack-carbines would have on white witnesses who for the most part have already been badly traumatised by the armed aggression targetting this community.
The worst intimidation however is suffered by the equality court’s visitors and employees – they bravely have to climb those steps while braving a wall of highly-aggressive, cursing, war-dancing, snarling, chanting, screaming and spitting ANC youth league ‘protestors’.
There are even death threats: the endangered family of the Transvaal Agricultural Union’s advocate, Roelof du Plessis, SC: had to go into hiding in the face of death threats, attempts to run their daughter off the road and mysterious break-ins.
Clearly, only the most courageous Afrikaners and Boers dare to climb those steps, to be photographed and publicly identified by the news media. Only the most lion-hearted Afrikaner men and women dare to walk through that barrage of hatespeech up those courtroom steps.
Afrikaners determined to use every peaceful, legal route to stop the ANC’s incitements to genocide:
The fact that these Afrikaner witnesses, advocates, lawyers, trade-unionists, and agriculturalists are nevertheless persevering in facing this ordeal at huge personal risks, testifies to their courage and their powerful determination to exhaust every legal and peaceful means at their disposal to stop the ANC-regime from inciting its followers with its current barrage of hatespeech which has all the hallmarks of calling for the genocide of the small, highly visible Afrikaner/Boer minority.
What is the purpose of the ANC’s NATIONAL RURAL YOUTH SERVICE and its militia-training of 600 ANCYL members at Salhanha?
Wall of aggression at Lindiwe Sisulu’s Ministry of Defence:
On May 3 2011, the civil rights movement Afriforum youth league national chairman Charl Oberholzer, above, walked into the office of the country’s Minister of Defence and Military Veterans Department, Lindiwe_Sisulu, to hand in a petition asking the minister to explain, under the Freedom of Information Act, why 600 civilian ANC-youth league members underwent militia-training at Saldanha military base at the expense of the taxpayers to create the mysterious “National Rural Youth Service’, and what use this militia-group could possibly have to require them to undergo military-training. The young Afrikaner’s delegation ran ‘into a wall of aggression’ at Sisulu’s office. Their petition for information was ‘rejected as unnecessary’ by this unnamed, obviously very aggressive government official (right), who told Oberholzer that ‘the Minister did not have time to have to explain themselves to Afriforum youths”. http://www.facebook.com/notes/afriforum-youth/
UNPO, ICC petitions by Afrikaner/Boers on April 5 2011
And a month earlier, other Afrikaners and Boers also were issuing warnings at international forums: legal counsel Paul Kruger of the Volksraad Verkiesings Kommissie on April 5 2011 went to the Unrepresented Nations and People’s Organisation (UNPO) in The Hague to hold a press conference about the plight of his people. Then he and his wife walked to the nearby International Criminal Court and handed in a petition from the Verkenners movement, asking the independent international tribunal to investigate the ruling African National Congress and the Government of South Africa for their gross human-rights violations and genocidal behaviour against the Afrikaner/Boer minority.
The African National Congress has always bullied, threatened, and killed its opponents:
The ANC’s only response to all these peaceful actions by the Afrikaner/Boers has been to bully them – as they have always done throughout their history to anyone who dares to stand up for their civil rights and thus are perceived to be the enemies of the ANC. Their bullying tactics at the Malema trial are clearly designed to intimidate the witnesses and to thus terrify them enough so that they would not testify against Malema at his hatespeech trial. It’s working: at least one farmer decided not to testify about the armed attacks suffered by his family: he quite rightly feared for their safety.
Afrikaner smallholder arrested on trumped-up charges:
Last week, an Afrikaner smallholder who also submitted a statement to the Malema trial, was arrested on trumped up charges of ‘owning Boeremag material’ and ‘illegal weapons’. It’s essential to point out that the Boeremag organisation – if it even existed except in State-documents – has never been declared a prohibited organisation: it’s not illegal to own such documentation. And I have also been reliably informed that the claimed ‘ illegal weapons cache’ were legally-registered, ordinary defensive weapons which are allowed under South African law.
The hatespeech continues: ‘white people should be treated like criminals”
This week, President Jacob Zuma again was sharply criticised for remaining quiet while Julius Malema told an election rally that “white people should be treated like criminals for stealing land from black people.” Zuma has never criticised anything said or done by Malema – and his silence speaks loudly: he obviously approves of Malema’s hatespeech and genocidal-tactics.
TAU SA, Afriforum will not withdraw hate speech case
The Cosatu trade union movement, which is a co-ruling partner of the ANC and the SA Communist Party, meanwhile has been issuing a barrage of disinformation about the Malema trial, constantly trying to divide the Afrikaner organisations which have lodged the lawsuit with claims that for instance the Transvaal Agricultural Union and/or Afriforum have approached them to ‘settle the case’. None of these claims are true yet the confusion is deliberately spread – and the news media is cooperating in this. The TLU says however that ‘this case has to go all the way to determine if singing “Kill the farmers” is hate speech. “TAU SA is not prepared to drop this case even if that would mean going on with it on its own, because we need to have any songs like these, which are insulting to any part of the community, be banned from singing in South African society,” say Mr Meintjes.
Family of TLU-advocate facing sinister threats, breakins, attempts to kill daughter:
White witnesses at the Malema hatespeech-trial also reportedly are being urinated on, loudly cursed, screamed at and spat upon and have to walk past this wall of loudly screaming, aggressive, dancing protestors who often chant ‘Kill the Boer’ from many accounts. Their loud singing can be heard thumping away even inside the court-room on the eighth floor, report Afriforum representatives at the trial. On the first day, Judge Lamont ordered other intimidators out of his court room: i.a. the machine-gun-toting body-guards accompanying Malema and ‘protecting him’. Lamont did not however order the court access cleared to stop witnesses from being intimidated. It’s actually illegal for private body-guards or private security-guards to show any weapons outside their clothing in South Africa.The SA Police watching the proceedings however also have thus far failed to arrest these body-guards below for flouting the country’s laws which rule the arming of private security guards… http://www.solidariteitradio.co.za
Graeme Hosken of the Pretoria News reported on April 18 2011 that the family of Advocate Roelof du Plessis, SC, left, who acts for the Transvaal Agriculture Union in this case, is being threatened in many sinisters ways since the start of the case. After discovering that the tyres on the car of their eldest daughter were sabotaged and cut in such a way that they would burst, causing a potentially fatal accident, the family now fear that the attacks are taking on a more sinister tone.“To say we are not scared would be a lie. These incidents, especially the latest, are far worse than before,” said Renette du Plessis.Among recent attacks were Du Plessis’s narrowly avoiding being rammed off the road last week.
After a recent night out the family returned to find that their house had been broken into.“Nothing was missing, but our family pictures were placed with newspaper clippings of the court case on our garden rubbish dump. “When we turned on our computers that night they crashed. When we took them to a computer store the next day we discovered someone had planted a string of highly sophisticated viruses on the computers, destroying everything on them. Added to these attacks was when two men driving a bakkie tried to force our daughter off the road. These incidents are becoming more sinister. We now fear for our children’s safety. While we do not know what will happen next, one thing is sure, Roelof will continue with this case.He will not stop because if he does it means that those who are behind this have won,” she said.
The couple’s eldest daughter, Marinette, said she became truly afraid when she discovered that her car tyres had been sabotaged. Roelof du Plessis said: “It makes one feel as though we are back in the dark apartheid days where state agents followed you, tapped your phones, broke into your homes and intimidated your family.”Du Plessis said even if he opened a case “nothing is likely to come of it”. – Pretoria News http://www.iol.co.za/news/crime-courts/threat-to-family-in-malema-case-1.1057908
