The newsletter says TRS has acknowledged that $275,000,000 is still invested in corporations doing business in South Africa and Namibia despite the June 1988 resolution calling for full divestment; the June 1988 resolution also allows the TRS (Teachers Retirement System) to continue to invest in Shell Oil. The newsletter reports that President P.W. Botha commuted the death sentences of the Sharpeville Six because of massive worldwide protests. The newsletter reports that according to the Centre for Applied Legal Studies, 4,591 people are known to have been held in Emergency Regulations as of June 10, 1988; of these 10% are under the age of 18.
