In the Truth Commission process there are victims and there are perpetrators of human right violations. Patrick Hlongwane was both. // Hlongwane left South Africa in December 1986 to meet with the leadership of the ANC in exile. He had been part of the Port Elizabeth Black Civic Organisation, but started working with the security police when conflict arose between the UDF and the civics. // I was involved in the [inaudible] cases in Port Elizabeth during the 80s. It happened that in 1984 I stabbed a guy, by the name of Mzolisi Goodman, and Mzolisi was actually an active member of COSAS. So, I stabbed him because he gave us a problem, you know in our area [inaudible] So, I went to Deon Niewoudt, actually Major Niewoudt a senior security branch policeman, I reported the guy to him. Then they said, no I can kill the guy. Then I did. Then from there I was arrested and released later.
