Report on a terrorism trial of 33 Namibians who were sentenced to prison for violation of South Africa's Terrorism Act. On September 25-26, an appeal was heard in the Appellate Division Court in Bloemfontein, South Africa, on whether the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court in Pretoria (which tried the men) could be challenged. In November, the same court will judge a separate appeal by 11 of the defendants against the severity of their sentences. The latest extension of apartheid in South West Africa was the forced removal of 8,000 Africans from the Old Location in Windhoek, capital of the territory, to a new township of Katutura. The report quotes Professor Richard Falk. • The Terrorism Trial • The Appeal Court • Basis for the Appeal • Security Council Action • South African Take-over • Act Now
