A host of other NGOs in the human rights field are watching you - watch out. We've got the muscle and power to deal with (the culprits) if and when we want to.— Judge Johan Kriegler, Chairman of Freedom Under Law
Freedom Under Law's Judge Johan Kriegler says the carefully planned operation was in an effort to intimidate civil society groups.
Armed robbers overpowered a security guard on Sunday at the foundation’s Johannesburg offices before stealing computers and documents.
Just days before the robbery, the foundation was in court along with Freedom Under Law to file an interdict against Hawks boss Berning Ntlemeza, challenging his appointment.
The timing is more than coincidental and the people knew precisely where they were going and how to get in. They had a key and, more sinister than that, took only computers that dealt with litigious matters.— Judge Johan Kriegler, Chairman of Freedom Under Law
