  • Description

    The Anglican Bishop of Johannesburg the Right Reverend Leslie Stradling, announced yesterday (Friday) that he had been assured that the arrest by security police of the Dean of Johannesburg, the Very Reverend Gonville French-Beytagh, had nothing to do with the Dean's anti-apartheid political views. He said it was the Dean's private activities that the police were investigating.

    South Africa's Minister for Police, Mr Lourens Muller, said today the Anglican Dean would probably appear in court next week to be charged.

    The Bishop's first formal statement on the arrest of the Dean came as security police continued to hold the 58 year old churchman incommunicado at police headquarters in Pretoria.
