THE TRIAL OF ASHLEY FORBES AND HIS FOURTEEN CO-ACCUSED

Fifteen people in the Western Cape, charged with terrorism, first appeared in court in November 1987. On December 14, 1988, fourteen were sentenced by the Cape Town Supreme Court.

Six of the defendants - Ashley Forbes (15-year sentence), Peter Jacobs and Nicklo Pedro (14 years each), Anwar Dramat (12 years), Nazeem Lowe and Clement Baadjies (10 years each) - were convicted on charges of MK activities.

Seven of the defendants were found guilty of providing assistance to them: David Fortuin, Jeremy Veary, Wayne Malgas and Ashraf Karriem all got two years, while Walter Rhoode, Colin Cairncross and Colin Petersen received suspended sentences. One defendant, Leon Scott, was convicted of promoting the aims of the ANC and also received a suspended sentence. Yasmina Pandy was acquitted, having already served a six-month sentence for contempt of court.
