Amnesty Cage Action - Far Greater Than Ahmed Zaoui


Amnesty Cage Action - Far Greater Than Ahmed Zaoui

Memories of the Bad old Days

South African Honorary Consul and New Zealand’s former Race Relations Conciliator, Gregory Fortuin today said that being publicly caged would bring back memories of the oppressive South African regime.

According to Fortuin this will revive memories of many dear friends who were incarcerated without trial and deprived of their freedom. He said, “Those detained without a trial found it torturous, those deprived of human contact in solitary confinement found it inhumane”. The irony is that during those dark days it was the efforts of thousands of fair-minded New Zealanders that ensured “the warm rays of sunshine shone in the dark corridors of Robben Island” to quote Mandela.

“This is not a challenge to New Zealand’s sovereignty but an appeal to its continued sense of fairness and reputation for justice” Fortuin said.

Fortuin said, “Ahmed Zaoui should be given a FAIR TRIAL or his FREEDOM, else who knows next time which one of us will be Ahmed Zaoui”

For more information contact: Gregory Fortuin 021 465254 or “in the cage” between noon and 1.00pm Cuba Mall.
