Farm Attacks: South African Institute of Race Relations summaries of Farm Attacks/Murders (against white farmers) from 1991 to 2006/7.

The SAIRR based its statistics on those of the government’s South African Police Service and the pro-ANC’s farmers’ cooperative, Agri-SA. It ignored all statistics and facts gathered by the Transvaal Agricultural Union of South Africa, Solidarity trade union and the civil-rights group Afriforum, amongst many other civil societies and groups archiving attacks against agricultural communities at local level, i.a. http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com and http://www.censorbugbear.org/farmitracker/reports

Also not included are the great many annual ‘veld fires’ which are started deliberately to target white farm dwellings and properties. Lives are lost and valuable properties and livestock fodder are lost each year. Some gangs have been arrested for such ‘arson’ which is NEVER listed as a ‘farm attack’ – even though farmers are even fired at when they try to put out the wildfires.

Racial discrimination: SAPoliceService refuses post of auditor of secret crime intelligence fund to whistle-blower col. Kobus Roos despite court order

SAPS refuses post of auditor of secret fund of crime-intelligence unit to whistle-blower colonel Kobus Roos — despite Labour Court order: Solidarity:

Solidarity trade union reports that the SAPS refuses to have colonel Kobus Roos conduct another audit of their crime-intelligence unit’s secret funds — after he revealed fraud and corruption during an earlier audit. The SAPS claims in a letter to Solidarity that ‘they will not grant access to Colonel Roos to the secret fund again, because ‘there are no vacant internal auditor’s post at Roos’ salar level at that unit.’ They do have an open post for Roos in an internal audit-departement at the SAPS headquarters in Pretoria – and demand that he must report for work next week.

This was the SAPS response six weeks after the Labour Court in Johannesburg ordered the SAPS to pay compensation in the amount of R156,000 to colonel Roos because lt-genl. Richard Mdluli, the now suspected head of crime-intelligence, had ‘transferred him from his post unilaterally.’ Judge Robert LaGrange ruled that the SAPS also had to place Col Roos in a post ‘similar to the one he occupied before his transfer and that if no such post was available in that unit, he had to be given an active job in another forensic-auditing unit of the SAPS. The court also ordered that Colonel Roos had to be given the first available opening to the rank of Brigadier.

Roos lodged his case at the Labour Court after he was given no active work to do for four years after he was transferred to another forensic auditing unit of the SAPS from the crime-intelligence unit. The court was provided with evidence proving that Roos had repeatedly uncovered proof of fraud and corruption with millions of Rands in the secret fund – but was repeatedly ordered by his supervisors to stop his investigations.

Solidarity’s head of fair-labour practices, Dirk Groenewald, said they question the SAPS claim that there was no post in the crime-intelligence unit for Colonel Roos – according to their information there are in fact three internal auditing-posts available at Roos’ salary level. The SAPS denies this and claims that this was an ‘invalid structure’ because it had been introduced by former police-chief Genl Bheki Cele. Solidarity has arranged a meeting with the SAPS about the issue to see what can be done to keep Roos inside the crime-intelligence auditing unit. “Roos now is being punished for a second time thanks to Mdluli’s actions,” Groenewald reportedly said. https://www.facebook.com/116298045063416/photos/a.178568022169751.48293.116298045063416/893012380725308/?type=1&theater — Solidarity: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=195909420099&ref=ts&fref=ts
