Amnesty International welcomes further positive steps which the Eastern Transvaal authorities have taken to address
the concerns of the Driefontein community. Since late January 1995 responsibility for investigating killings and
harassment of Driefontein activists has been passed to a special investigation team which is working under the direct
supervision of the Eastern Transvaal Provincial Minister for Safety and Security and working jointly with an
investigating officer from Volksrust police station. Driefontein residents see that the investigators are active in their
area, and posters offering a police reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Hendrietta
Nkabinde's killers are now on display. The police investigators have been providing regular feedback to the
community.
No further action by Urgent Action participants is requested. Amnesty International remains concerned, however,
that the perpetrators of past human rights abuses in Driefontein be brought to justice in due course, and will continue
to follow the situation there closely. Driefontein residents have asked for their thanks and appreciation to be passed
to all who wrote letters in support of them.
