Type AMNESTY DECISIONS
Names ADRIAAN DAVID BAKER
At the time of the incidents the Applicant was a member of Section C1, Vlakplaas. During August he received instructions from his commanding officer, Colonel Eugene de Kock, to carry out certain operations under the command of Colonel Louis de Jager, then commander of the Intelligence Unit of the Security Branch in the Western Cape, which resulted in the above incidents. The operational team included inter alia Captain Kok and Sergeant Mentz who both applied for amnesty for the first two incidents.
The objective was to cast suspicion on and disrupt activities of the Mass Democratic Movement who at the time protested against a tour of a World Rugby team in South Africa. Nobody was killed or injured.
The Committee is satisfied that the Applicant has complied with all the requirements for amnesty, that the offences committed were offences associated with a political objective within the context of the conflict of the past as envisaged in the Act and that the Applicant has made a full disclosure of all relevant facts.
