Default ANC slams FW de Klerk Foundation for denying apartheid was crime against humanity

ANC slams FW de Klerk Foundation for denying apartheid was crime against humanity

Feb 16, 2020

The ruling party is now saying it wants denials of apartheid’s criminality to be criminalised in a manner similar to holocaust denial in Germany.

In a statement on Sunday, the ANC condemned the views of the FW de Klerk Foundation in which it denied that apartheid had been a crime against humanity.

It described this as “a blatant whitewash”.

Former president FW De Klerk had controversially expressed the same view in an interview just days ahead of the state of the nation address (Sona). He said that apartheid was not the sort of grand mass crime that could be compared to genocide and the United Nations had been wrong to describe the former regime and its actions as such.
