  • We will investigate Zimbabwean officials for torture: SAPS

    In a unanimous judgment, delivered by acting Justice Stevan (SUBS: CORRECT) Majiedt, the court concluded that the SAPS must investigate the claims because it had a duty to do so, under the Constitution, the ICC Act, and South Africa's international law obligation. The Southern Africa Litigation Centre (SALC), who initially brought the case with the Zimbabwean Exiles Forum (Zef) in 2008, said on Thursday South Africa's highest court had set an important precedent. "South Africa will not be a safe haven for perpetrators of the world's worst crimes" SALC executive director Nicole Fritz said in a statement. Zef chairman Gabriel Shumba said the forum was thrilled that victims of torture in Zimbabwe had some prospect of seeing justice served.

  • New, improved Mario Balotelli ready to fulfil dying father's wish

    Balotelli's return to the Rossoneri on a one-season loan deal has been met with derision in Italy, with pundits and most fans opposed to the striker's return to the club he left only a year ago. Balotelli spectacularly underperformed at Anfield, instead embellishing his reputation as a "liability" -- the view of former Reds legend Graeme Souness, among others. Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic and Milan have instigated a special code of conduct for Balotelli, a player who in the past has riled fans and clubs with his off-field antics, outrageous hairstyles and outings to nightclubs where he has enjoyed the odd cigarette. Balotelli has pledged to comply -- and with good reason.
