Minister of Justice, Michael Masutha, has also launched a project to recover the remains of 140 political prisoners during.
He (Selby Mavuso) was taken from the Brits police station, taken to Komatipoort, handcuffed, drugged, shot and his body was burned in a fire.— Madeleine Fullard, Head of Missing Persons Task Team
Convicted apartheid killer who was released on parole, Eugene de Kock, continues to assist the task team with information. The task team has recovered 103 bodies in the country to date. They are still looking for an estimated 500 bodies.
What we try to do is to offer them a visit to the site, they can see where the person was killed, and they are able to perform some ceremonies or rituals that are able to stand in for some kind of formal burial.— Madeleine Fullard, Head of Missing Persons Task Team
