Special Report Transcript Episode 80, Section 3, Time 20:53

The existence of Vlakplaas was exposed by Dirk Coetzee and Almond Nofemela in a Vrye Weekblad interview in November 1989. It was met with flat denials from generals and police officers. These lies were repeated under oath to the Harms Commission of Inquiry into state death squads. Vlakplaas was only disbanded in 1993. Even at the Truth Commission hearings the apartheid politicians were denying responsibility for this unit.
