MEDIA STATEMENT BY THE SA NATIONAL DEFENCE UNION

PRETORIA, THURSDAY, 20 MARCH 2014

REACTION BY THE NATIONAL SECRETARY OF SANDU TO THE MEDIA RELEASE WHEREIN THE SANDF PERSONALLY ATTACKS HIM

It is with utter disgust that SANDU and its national secretary, Adv JG (Pikkie) Greeff, has noted the media release by the SANDF on 18 March 2014, in which the SANDF has seen it fit to attack the person of the national secretary and falsely accuse him, by implication and insinuation, of being unpatriotic and deceitful. 

SANDU and its National Secretary is not surprised that the SANDF management has stooped so low as to throw overboard all bounds of common decency and to play the proverbial man instead of the ball.

The fact of the matter remains that the SANDF was unwilling to respect the rights of the accused members at the Heidelberg trial and had to be forced to change their views by a High Court application.

Neither SANDU, nor its National Secretary, will ever apologise for defending the rights of members of the SANDF.

The SANDF media release is a badly veiled attempt at deflecting from its own farcical efforts at managing the Heidelberg trial, by personally attacking an individual. Consequently, the National Secretary has instructed his attorneys to service notice of intention to sue the SANDF for defamation, as can be seen from the attached letter dispatched to the SANDF today.

SANDU will not even bother to respond to the false and unwarranted allegations any further, as these issues will be dealt with in a court of law in due course and be proven to be false, unwarranted and defamatory.
