Press release about the release of documents by the Stop the Apartheid Rugby Tour (SART) coalition showing that a South African, Louis Luyt, a key figure in the South African Ministry of Information information scandal, gave the Eastern Ruby Football Union (ERFU) $25,000 in December 1981. Later that month the ERFU invited the South African Springboks rugby team to the U.S. in September/October 1981. SART was formed to oppose the tour.
