Former TRC Commissioner Yasmin Sooka describes FW de Klerk's 1997 appearance before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was held in South Africa after the end of apartheid to provide a platform for victims and perpetrators of violence.

Yasmin Sooka, a commissioner at the TRC talks to Clement Manyatela on The Midday Report.

He never accepted that legally apartheid was declared a crime against humanity by the General Assembly of the United Nations.

Yasmin Sooka, Former commissioner - Truth and Reconciliation Commission

If you look at all of the public utterances he never accepted responsibility.

Yasmin Sooka, Former commissioner - Truth and Reconciliation Commission

I don't think an inquest would be the correct legal framework to use but I would certainly argue that if we began the prosecutions in a number of cases still awaiting some kind of finalisation...then I think you would be able to build a direct link to FW de Klerk as somebody who was the State Security Council.

Yasmin Sooka, Former commissioner - Truth and Reconciliation Commission

She cites the Cradock Four and the Pebco Three.

I do think it is important to canvas his complicity.
