Marikana victims pin hopes for closure on Lawyers meeting

Government lawyers will today meet with legal representatives of the claimants of the 2012 Marikana shooting in Sandton.

Rehad Desai said… “This morning the lawyers are meeting with the lawyers that have been appointed by the state to negotiate a civil suit of R1 billion launched by the injured, arrested miners, and the widows of the miners.

We are hoping that the state brings a swift conclusion to this matter.

The president himself says he supports compensation rather than link the legal proceeding which will be taking years.

We think it’s right that people get compensated but we must not mix it up with justice.”
