    TRANSCRIPT:



    HILL: THE ASSUMPTION IS THAT IF THE MINISTER SIGNS AN ORDER SAYING YOU MAY ONE DAY BE A NUISANCE, THERE MUST BE SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU.



    HENDERSON: AS AN EXAMPLE OF THIS, I READ MY DEPORTATION ORDER VERY EARLY IN THE MORNING. I NOTICED THAT IT WAS SIGNED BY MR LARDNER BURKE, AND I POINTED OUT TO THE DETECTIVE THAT HIS ORDER WAS ILLEGAL BECAUSE IT WAS SINGED BY A PRIVATE CITIZEN, AND HE REPLIED 'I'M AFRAID THAT DOESN'T WORRY ME VERY MUCH'. AND IT DOESN'T WORRY WHITE RHODESIANS VERY MUCH THAT THESE THINGS ARE GOING ON.



    REPORTER: WELL, NOW YOU'RE BACK IN BRITAIN, WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS?



    WHITTAKER: WE FEEL IT VERY IMPORTANT TO DO WHAT WE CAN FOR THE UNIVERSITY HERE IN THE WAY OF FORWARD PLANNING ON OTHER STAFF WHO ARE GOING TO FOLLOW US AND STUDENTS WHO ARE GOING TO BE IN A VERY DIFFICULT POSITION.



    HILL: I THINK WE CAN ADD TO THAT TOO THAT WE WANT TO DRAW ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF AFRICANS BEHIND BARBED WIRE, AND IT'S JUST OUR LUCK BECAUSE WE WERE WHITE BWANAS AND UNIVERSITY LECTURERS THAT THERE'S BEEN A INTERNATIONAL OUTCRY ABOUT US. WE HOPE THAT WE SHALL HELP TO DRAW ATTENTION OT THE PLIGHT OF THE HUNDREDS OF AFRICANS WHO ARE ROTTING AWAY BEHIND BARBED WIRE.

    Background: ANOTHER THREE OF THE LECTURERS AT THE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE IN SALISBURY WHO WERE ARRESTED BY THE ILLEGAL REGIME OF MR IAN SMITH AND THEN DEPORTED HAVE ARRIVED IN LONDON.

    THE THREE LATEST DEPORTEES FROM RHODESIA TO ARRIVE IN LONDON WERE MR CHRISTOPHER HILL, MR RICHARD WHITTAKER AND MR IAN HENDERSON. THEY WERE AMONG THE NINE LECTURERS ARRESTED IN A DAWN SWOOP ON THE CAMPUS LAST WEDNESDAY (27TH JULY).

    BEFORE THEY WERE DEPORTED, THEY WERE HELD IN PRISON WITHOUT BEING CHARGED OR TRIED. WHEN THEY ARRIVED IN LONDON TONIGHT, POLICE AT THE AIRPORT ORDERED STUDENTS WAITING TO MEET THEM TO MOVE ON, AND CONFISCATED SOME PLACARDS.

    MR HILL AND MR HENDERSON SPOKE TO A REPORTER ABOUT THE ATTITUDES OF THE POLICE IN RHODESIA...
