The leaflet about torture in South Africa reports evidence of widespread and regular torture and ill-treatment of detainees submitted to the Supreme Court by Dr. Wendy Orr, a district surgeon responsible for medically examining detainees and prisoners in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. The leaflet faults University of Hawaii (UH) President Simone for his position on divestment, given these facts. The leaflet discusses Amnesty International, South African police, Sipho Mutsi, the Congress of South African Students (COSAS), UH Regents, and divestment.
