Special Report Transcript Episode 25, Section 5, Time 36:26

An example of the fact that orders sometimes came directly from the top was the order given to me by Gen Johan van der Merwe, then Brig van der Merwe, to give hand grenades with zero explosion mechanisms to ANC activists who were looking for weapons. The order was given to me in Springs by Gen van der Merwe, and he specifically told me that the order came from Minister Louis le Grange and that President PW Botha as well as ex-commissioner General Johan Coetzee knew about it. And approved it.
