Mercury - NPA unveils new guidelines for prosecuting apartheid offenders
www.themercury.co.za, 17 Jan 2006 [cached]
According to the Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, Gerhard Nel, the new policy seeks to ensure the prosecution of people who failed to use the amnesty provisions created by the TRC process.Nel told the National Assembly's Portfolio Committee on Justice and Constitutional Development that even in cases where the National Directorate for Public Prosecutions might decide not to prosecute, victims and relatives could still pursue civil charges against individuals alleged to have wronged them under apartheid.

However, Nel said the NPA, working with other government agencies, such as the National Intelligence Agency, would still leave its door open for people who were willing to help unearth the truth about past mysteries.
This would include people who were willing to assist the state by providing evidence that would lead to a successful prosecution, but granting them indemnity would remain a prerogative of the courts, depending on the usefulness of the evidence given.Such people, however, would still be vulnerable to civil claims, he said.
