The late Ashley Kriel's sister Michel Assure says her family has still not found closure, nearly 29 years after his death.
The uMkhonto we Sizwe (MK) guerrilla was killed on 9 July 1987 in a house in Hazendal, Athlone. Security police officers claim he had shot himself while resisting arrest.
Kriel's family are overjoyed that the Hawks will reopen the investigation into his death, on suspicion that he was murdered.
The news came as a great joy to the family.— Michel Assure, the late Ashley Kriel's sister
