Mr. Commissioner,
HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WHITE POLITICAL PRISONERS

With reference to the above please allow me to complain to you about the obvious inequality and discrimination being practiced by the government between black and white prisoners in South Africa.
I refer you to the matters of messrs. Shabir Sheik and Jackie Selebi. Both of them were sentenced to long prison sentences but on account of their health conditions both served a very small part of their sentence. Let me hasten to assure you that I do not begrudge the two gentlemen their parole which was granted to them for amongst others, obvious humane reasons.

Although having been assured through the media of the terminal illness of at least one of the gentlemen, quite sometime ago he was still alive and well and still capable to play gholf.

Clive Derby Lewis en Andries TreurnichtOn the other hand Mr. Clive Derby Lewis, a white political prisoner who has served more than twenty years of his sentence, who became eligible for parole and who on account of his terminal illness, applied for medical parole which was refused. Mr. Derby-Lewis is on top of that an old man. He is still being detained. Can we please be informed of the rationale behind all this?
Let me also inform you that Mr. Nelson Mandela once wrote that to judge the humaneness of a country, one must look at the treatment of it’s prisoners. He himself was released by his jailers and allowed to continue his political life. The same with the communist, the late Mr. Bram Fischer, who terminally ill, was released and allowed to die outside prison.
Why are these white prisoners being treated in this inhumane fashion? Surely it is because they are white. There can not be any other reason for this.
The same applies to the members of the Boeremag. Honourable gentlemen who protested the discrimination meted out to white people. Some of them were detained for over 11 years awaiting trial. They were only recently allowed the privilege of receiving contact visits from friends and family.

Sir, in conclusion please allow me to request you to address this obvious iniquity against people who cannot due to circumstances beyond their control, plead their own case.

Yours faithfully
Piet Rudolph: Boer Republicans.
