In South Africa, an inquest into the death of black detainee, Mr. Lungile Tabalaza, may begin with two weeks. Twenty year-old Mr. Tabalaza died after falling from Security Police headquarters in Port Elizabeth on Monday (10 July). He was being held for questioning on several alleged offences, including arson and the use of petrol bombs. The South African Minister of Justice and Police, James Kruger, said bars were in the process of being installed in the windows of the Security Police building when Mr. Tabalaza fell to his death. In an interview with Cliff Saunders of the SABC in Pretoria, Mr. Kruger denied that the detainee had been tortured.
