A former detainee, Maurice Smithers, has told the high court which is conducting an inspection at the Johannesburg Central Police how he witnessed the interrogation of activist Neil Aggett by the apartheid security branch police.
Aggett died in his cell in 1982 in what was later ruled as suicide.
This has been disputed with an inquiry that began on Monday.
