Special Report Transcript Episode 74, Section 2, Time 17:48

The question of whether or not the Pebco Three were assaulted before they died is crucial to whether the applicants are granted amnesty. If the activists were beaten to death, the security policemen will have difficulty convincing the Committee that such brutality was in proportion to the political objective sought: to control militancy in the Eastern Cape. On the other hand, if the Amnesty Committee decides they did not tell the truth about the way the three activists died they may refuse amnesty. Truth and full disclosure are preconditions for amnesty.
