15:27Jacques, why should we believe this man, Joe Mamasela? // Mamasela has been cooperating with the Transvaal Attorney-General for several months now. He has given them invaluable information, he has made a full confession to them, and as a result of this confession they have launched a number of murder investigations into Pebco Three, and also into the murder of Fabian and Florence Ribeiro in 1985. And I believe that, because of Mamasela’s cooperation, they may arrest people involved in the Pebco Three murders very soon.
