Special Report Transcript Episode 72, Section 2, Time 18:21

My differences are not with these individuals though but with the mentality of an organisation which led to its soldiers and allowed those soldiers to attack its own government. We all know that the peace negotiations were well on the way by the time this attack took place. In fact the National Party, the racist regime, had already transferred power to the transitional executive council and the elections was almost inevitable. The word ‘amnesty’ is derived from the Greek word ‘amnesia’ which means to forget. Well, we cannot forget. A just war is understandable, but granting amnesty to people who killed indiscriminately will be condoning the actions of every single individual worldwide who has ever planted a bomb on an airplane, machine-gunned a restaurant or killed innocent people in the name of political idealism.
