1. Embassy posted the South Africa section of the Annual
Report on International Religious Freedom 2003, the Country
Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2003, the report on
Supporting Human Rights and Democracy: The U.S. Record
2003-2004, and the Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report - June
2004 on our website.
2. Embassy will not translate the South Africa section in the
Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2003. English
is one of South Africa's eleven official languages, and is
effectively South Africa's lingua franca, commonly understood
by the vast majority of post's audience for the Country
Reports on Human Rights Practices.
