PRESS RELEASE: Marikana Funding Case
The United Democratic Movement (UDM) acknowledges, with respect, the North Gauteng High Court's judgement handed down yesterday in the Marikana Funding Case.
However, we take exception to the fact that these people were killed by the state forces. Furthermore, it seems that justice is being made a mockery of, by murderers in police uniforms who are having their bills footed by the State. To add insult to injury this is the same State that should be protecting its people who have been victimised, attacked and murdered.
The UDM calls upon the State to grant remediation and a speedy justice for the affected miners and their families.
