Special Report Transcript Episode 83, Section 1, Time 00:38

Stanza Bopape was a 28 year old Pretoria activist and the leader of Mamelodi Civic Organisation when he was brought to the notorious John Vorster Square Police Headquarters in downtown Johannesburg in 1988. It was here on the dreaded 10th floor that so many detainees before him had been questioned. Now it was Stanza’s turn. His interrogators were intent on getting information regarding Bopape’s alleged involvement with the so called Maponya Terrorist Group. Bopape, the police say was uncooperative and in their words ‘stubborn.’ After some hours they decided to go over to torture.
