The Right2Know campaign has welcomed the release of the Alternative Information Development Centre report into the Lonmin, Marikana massacre.

R2K says the research done by the AIDC reveals that Lonmin attempted to hide profits of at least R400 million per year between 1999 and 2012 in Bermuda.

R2K’s Gauteng Coordinator Dale McKinley said it showed the collusion of the private capital in this case with government to try to avoid responsibilities towards workers and then try to make it appear as though cannot afford the wage increases.

“Besides the massacre itself, this kind of information is very important for people to know so that people and corporations like Lonmin can be held accountable and we can have the proper regulations in place to make sure that they pay the taxes as well as pay workers a decent wage.” McKinley added.
