Harmse Naomi Vanderbijlpark cop beat her in the face with his fist Aug 25 2011

Mrs Naomi Harmse (28) was driving on Faraday Street in Vanderbijlpark on Friday-night with a male friend at 23:15 enroute home when rubbish on the road when she was forced off the road by a car – and this caused a burst tyre. Just as they were being forced off the road a car stopped behind them. “I thought it was the car which had forced us off the road and asked the male person why he had done this.’  Then a number of other unknown black men exited the car behind them – and descended on the white couple’s car. They plucked her friend from her car and started dragging him away while she tried to stop them from attacking him. But the local police then showed up  and arrested the Afrikaans couple. At the charge office she was forbidden to make any calls, even though she was being arrested allegedly for assault – and had the legal right to call her lawyer to arrange for bail.  “I had hidden my cellphone so that I could call for help to get me out, but it rang and the cop at the charge office demanded that I give him my cellphone. I refused,’ she said.  “The next moment he was on top of me, threw me from the chair to the ground, sat on me, beat me with a fist in my face, called me a white bitch,’ she said.  Her friend dragged the black policeman off her. The couple remained in custody all weekend, and appeared in court on Monday on ‘assault charges’ and released on their own cognisance. She has lodged a formal charge against the police officer, confirmed warrant/officer Kinnie Steyn, who also confirmed the couple’s arrest. It’s not known if a court-date was set for the ‘assault charge’.   http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Vrou-glo-geslaan-in-polisiekantoor-20110825

 

Nelspruit cops ignored assault on elderly white widow by striking mob Aug232011 White River widow Irene McCarthy was struck, cursed with hatespeech, her car rocked by large mob of aggressive black strikers – “I pay taxes for these roads: my Irish blood boiled and indignation welled up…’ she said:

23 August 2011 — White River. An elderly widow was abused and assaulted as she tangled with a rioting mob in the latest wave of strike protests. Nelspruit journalist Peter Doble writes that elderly White River widow Irene McCarthy was verbally abused and assaulted as she tangled with a rioting mob of large black males in the latest wave of strike protests. She was blocked from travelling through White River on Friday morning as a group of about 50 municipal workers moved from junction to junction stopping all traffic, emptying and dispersing litter and setting fire to it. Cars, taxis and trucks were forced to run the gauntlet of burning debris and broken glass as they jumped red lights  to avoid the mob. The traumatised Mrs McCarthy was hit in the face while the mob of strikers surrounded her car, kicking it, rocking it, throwing it with stones and beating it with sticks.
“I was not going to allow them to stop me from going where I wanted,” she said, still visibly distressed and nursing her injured cheek.
“I pay taxes to use these roads and they have no right to prevent me from doing so. As they surrounded the car, my Irish blood boiled and indignation welled up. They started to push my car backwards and then rock it. As I drove forward they became more abusive. I told them that I was not scared of them.” As the mob started to disperse, the whole group pressed intimidatingly against McCarthy’s car, and at that point someone hit her in the face with an object causing her to black out and sending her glasses flying. McCarthy staggered out and, although shaking with fear and anger, she was determined to go to the police station and lay a charge. 
Police from nearby cop-shop were conspicuous by their absence until afterwards…
Bystanders were threatened and aggressively ordered not to take photographs. It was not a peaceful march or protest but  an organised act of deliberate violent public disorder. Despite White River SAPS  located close by, there was no visible policing. The rioting group was watched while causing mayhem, starting fires and abusing motorists and pedestrians without any monitoring or interference. A policeman dressed in civilian clothes  arrived after the McCarthy incident but by then the protesters had moved on. The government previously pledged that riotous behaviour would not be tolerated from strikers. Nelspruit municipality has sought an emergency High Court interdict to prevent any further public nuisance from its strikers. Municipal communications manager Ms Bessie Pienaar said that photographic evidence of incidents has been requested and the appropriate legal or disciplinary action will be taken against identified individuals.

 Three black gunmen (in hijacked car from white man Boksburg) attack white bakery owner in Kempton Park
Kempton Park attackers of white bakery owner arrested by metrocops Aug252011 25 August 2011 – Three black gunmen attacked the owner of a confectionary-bakery at Croydon Kempton Park earlier today.  Supt Wilfred Kgasago, metro police spokesman, said all the white owner’s personal belongings, the money as well as two unlicensed firearms were recovered after the three very aggressive gunmen were arrested by metro-police. The armed attack against the owner of the Croydon Confectionery took place at around 11am. The owner was robbed of a substantial amount of cash, car keys as well as a Blackberry cellphone.  Kgasago said metro police officers closed in on a white Hyundai Tucson fitting the description of the vehicle circulated as involved in the robbery on Modderfontein Road near Rabie Ridge.  “All three suspects were arrested. On checking the chassis number emblazoned on the window of the suspects’ vehicle, records reflected the vehicle was hijacked in February in Boksburg,” Kgasago added. The three adult black males face charges of armed robbery, possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition as well as possession of a suspected stolen vehicle and goods. The docket was registered at Rabie Ridge Police Station. The trio were remanded for their bail-hearing date at Tembisa Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

Afrikaners ethnically-cleansed from Pretoria by ANC-regime using court-orders: but providing no alternative accommodation first:

However they also can’t help her with housing: the entire squatter camp also faces being torn down: they have orders to appear in the Pretoria municipal court in Visagie Street, Pretoria on September 2 2011 to hear the fate of their own squatter shacks, which houses  homeless Afrikaner families:

 ANC-regime CAN expropriate private land WITHOUT advance compensation: Constitutional Court but the State always must provide alternative accommodation before eviction…

JOHANNESBURG – In a land-mark ruling against an Asian land-owner in Durban which is expected to have an important impact on the ANC-regime’s ongoing confiscation of privately-owned landed properties countrywide, the Constitutional Court did not agree with a KwaZulu-Natal family trust that the amount and time of compensation must be settled before their land was expropriated.

The judgment was handed down in Johannesburg on Thursday. The matter related to private  properties belonging to an Asian family along the Umgeni River which flows through parts of Durban. When notice of expropriation in order to canalise the river was received in 2004, Mohammed Yusuf Haffajee and others did not formally object. They were willing to vacate the property but wanted to enter into a private treaty. The expropriation date was set by the municipality for July 31 2005 without an agreement on compensation having been reached. The  Durban municipality had tendered a compensation amount but it was rejected as too low for the actual land-value. The ANC-run city officials believed that compensation and expropriation were separate, and that a disagreement on compensation did not invalidate expropriation. However the Haffajee family insisted that expropriation could not take place until the amount of compensation had been determined. An eviction order against them was granted by the High Court in Durban and the private land owners then appealed this on the grounds that expropriation before settling the compensation issue was unconstitutional.  They believed that under the property clause in Section 25 of the Constitution, determining the amount and time of the compensation was a prerequisite.  Leave to appeal was refused in the High Court and the Supreme Court of Appeal. The Haffajee family then applied for leave to appeal at the Constitutional Court, but the court found that although there would be times where it would be unjust to evict people before determining  compensation, like cases where people could lose their livelihood or homes, there were also cases where this would not be possible. Urgent evacuation ahead of natural disasters would be an example.“An inflexible requirement for compensation before expropriation would therefore be against Section 25(3) of the Constitution that the amount and time of compensation must be a balance between the public interest and the interests of those affected by expropriation,.’ the constitutional court stated in a ruling which is expected to have a widespread effect on the ANC-regime’s current expropriation of all privately-owned properties in South Africa. The court ruled that Section 25(2) of the Constitution did not require that the amount and time of compensation and payment must always be determined before expropriation.  The court said this determination would generally be just and equitable, but where it had to be done after expropriation, it should be done as soon as was reasonably possible.

Rights to access to housing must be protected: state must provide alternative housing before eviction:

Eviction cannot be done without court supervision: The ruling also included the assessment that In disputed cases of eviction, the courts must always ensure a just and equitable outcome in line with Section 26, which protects the right of access to housing.
The court allowed the application for leave to appeal, but the appeal itself was dismissed with each party ordered to pay their own costs.

 Farm-manager Loffie van der Gryp 2008’s murderers sentenced to life: killer’s mother apologises to Afrikaner family:
Grijp vd Loffie manager Sterkfontein Dairy Farm ltr Roedolf, Loffie, Linda, Leandre, Bennett[9] 2011-08-25 Beeld journalist Jinine Botha covered the trial of some of the black murderers of dairy farm-foreman Loffie van der Gryp at Sterkfontein on Oct 28 2009.

She writes that the Van der Gryp family cannot forgive the killers. Original police-statements noted that  the farm was attacked by twelve gunmen. Only three were convicted yesterday and one man acquitted. It’s not known what happened to the other  attackers. Yesterday, convicted murderer Dumisane Ncebesha’s Mozambican mother burst into tears in court when she heard the life-long prison sentence pronounced. Mrs Anna-Marie Strydom, sister of the murdered farmer, said in reaction that while ‘the killers deserved what they got,’ she obviously would never blame the mother for the grief she now has to go through.

Mother of killer apolologises to family:

Sentenced to life-long sentences were Dumisane Ncebesha, 23, (of Mozambique); South Africans Joe Joseph Mashala (22) and George Thulani Mahlalela (28). Ncebesha’s mother feared to be identified because she might lose her work, she told Beeld journalist. However – the weeping mother approached the widow of the murdered Afrikaner farmer after the ruling, gave her a hug and apologised for what her son had done to her.”My heart is very sore for my child but also for the Van der Gryp family,’ the mother said.

Family friend Frida Coetzee commented that’the mother can still go and see her son in prison. We will never see Loffie again.’ Besides the murder of Van der Gryp, the murderers also were sentenced for attempted murder of neighbour , dominee Marthinus Jacobus “Boer” Booysen and  robbery with extinuating circumstances.for this crime they were sentenced to 30 years – but that’s meaningless because in South Africa all the sentences are served together. A fourth accused Karlito Macamo (29), was acquited of the charges.

The entire Van der Gryp family was attacked on 28 October 2008, the children were tied up and held at gunpoint —  and forced to listen to their father shot dead execution style – while he was tied up and had been hit by a stone.”The murdered farmer had posed no danger to the gunmen, who even kicked him after he was shot dead,’ said judge Philip Hattingh. Other factors taken into consideration, he said, were tthat none of the murderers had ever shown any remorse; and the fact that the dairy farm deteriorated after Van der Gryp’s murder. 

Farm worker Phillemon Mokasi testified against the killers:

He quoted the testimony by farm-worker Phillemon Mokasi, 49: “Before his murder the farm produced 10,000 liters of milk a day, now it produces 1,500 liters. I am an old man, where can I still get work? Young people should know if you walk the road of these men, you will end up behind bars.” the judge said that the dairy-farm had to let go half of its workers after the murder and more workers are expected to lose their jobs this month.”The Sterkfontein Dairy was managed by Mr van der Gryp: he did not own it.

This dairy supplied the entire region with milk products from its own Fresian herd – and it was located in a commercially very advantagenous position:  right next to the Greensleeves restaurant along the R563-route to Hekpoort and Meropeng.

Although the murderous attack was persistently described as an ‘armed robbery’, there is no evidence that anything was actually robbed from the dairy farm nor from the Van der Gryp family: the only items were looted from neighbour, pastor ‘Boer”  Booysen after he was disabled in the gun-fight which erupted before Van der Gryp was executed.The gang had first bashed Van der Gryp over the head, leaving him dazed and bleeding on the ground. They had tied him up. The gang was split into several groups: some attacking the family, tying them up at gunpoint: Linda, 46, Bennett, 23, Roelof, 21, and daughter LeandrÉ (17). Booysen, the pastor of the Van der Gryp family’s Afrikaans Evangelical Church nearby, and whose house they were renting, had gone out to investigate and the pastor then was injured in a fierce gun-battle with the gang. They shot Booysen in a leg; and then executed Van der Gryp.
