Some charges against Wouter Basson dropped
26 September 2011
Some of the charges brought against the former head of the apartheid government’s chemical and biological warfare programme, Wouter Basson, have been dropped.
This is after the Health Professions Council of SA resumed its probe into Basson.
This is despite his name being cleared by the Pretoria High Court more than nine-years ago.
The dropped charges relate to Basson accepting his appointment as head of the controversial programme in the 1980s.
