Special Report Transcript Episode 20, Section 2, Time 02:51

Eugene de Kock also named former president PW Botha as a man who was directly involved, who gave orders; who had intimate knowledge. Can the Truth Commission afford not to call Mr. PW Botha? // I don’t think we can afford not to call him quite frankly. // But he has said that he won’t come. Will you force him? // Well, I don’t want to speculate about the future but I think the law is there for all of us. For instance, if there is a decision that has been taken by the Commission - and I’ve given my own views that this is something that we can hardly ignore - where a person is implicated at that level and where a person is generally defiant and said ‘look I have nothing to do with that Commission,’ we have to look what the law provides and if the law provides that we can subpoena a person, we can even cause a person to incriminate himself or herself, then that is the route that we’d have to go.
