Mrs. ;la namgoben--wife of one of the Durban trialists--Durban, 1985 ) | tT..-"

The trial is an example of "arbitrary powers, they vere orreyted on order froI: the Minister

and are being held on order from the Attorney General". if they are convicted of Section 28

violations, if they're lawyers, they can be struck from the roll, can be listed, and can be

restricted from holding memberships in organizations.

At the British consulate it was a siLall room with no beddir.g. everythingg that was provided

was provided Irom outside. They even had to go on a hunger strike in order to get in to see

the people. when we were allowed to see them, it was only for 40 i.in. per day. Toward

the end, there was again restricted access.

Billy Biair gave an interview to ITV. The consulate said it was political--he was trying to

draw attention to Section 28 implications.

Wives of the trialists went to churches to publicize, also to temple services, and we put

up some placards on the street corners.

'!hey are slightly better off in prison", they have inore space. when tr-ey were in the britih

consulate they were not allowed to assign Tower of attorney. When someone is held under

Section 29, even if they are held in isolation, they are still allowed to assign power

of attorney.

&he reasons for going into the British Consulate were-1) Britain made a statement about the

constitution, 2) Britain was in South Africa and ILLce no arrangements; for majority rule,

3) it was possible to launch a successful campaign in British because of the large number
of Indians.
