    MR. DESMOND LARDNER-BURKE, THE RHODESIAN MINISTER OF LAW AND ORDER, ANNOUNCED THE THREE MONTH STATE?

  • Description

    MR. DESMOND LARDNER-BURKE, THE RHODESIAN MINISTER OF LAW AND ORDER, ANNOUNCED THE THREE MONTH STATE OF EMERGENCY ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER THE FIFTH.

    WHEN QUESTIONED ON THE STATE OF EMERGENCY, MR. LARDNER-BURKE SAID THAT IT HAD BEEN NECESSARY BECAUSE THERE WAS A THREAT TO SECURITY IN RHODESIA AND THAT IT WAS THE GOVERNMENT'S DUTY TO MAINTAIN LAW AND ORDER. HE EXPLAINED THAT TRAINED SABATEURS WERE POISED IN TERRITORIES TO THE NORTH OF RHODESIA WAITING INSTRUCTIONS TO ENTER THE COUNTRY AND CREATE HAVOC. SOME SABOTEURS HAD ALREADY ENTERED RHODESIA AND HAD BEEN CAUGHT AND TRIED. CACHES OF ARMS AND AMMUNITION WERE KNOWN TO EXIST IN HOSTILE COUNTRIES.

    THE STATE OF EMERGENCY IS SEEN IN SOME QUARTERS TO BE A FURTHER DEFIANT STEP TOWARDS A UNILATERAL DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE BY RHODESIA.
