The alleged military commander and de facto leader of the Boeremag, Tom Vorster, is due to hear his fate this week for his alleged involvement in plans to topple the ANC-led government.
Judge Eben Jordaan has already ruled that Vorster stepped forward as leader of the Boeremag after police started investigating Mike du Toit. Proceedings will resume in the North Gauteng High Court this morning.
Vorster's coup plans included blowing up Parliament, the SABC, the SA Reserve Bank headquarters and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange on the same day. This was some of the evidence included on Friday in Jordaan's summary of the case against Vorster.
Vorster declared on numerous occasions that the Boeremag was going to "take back" the country, and that black people would be chased out, but coloured people would be "left for later".
The group’s plan entailed chasing all blacks and Indians out of the country.
Nine of the accused - brothers Mike and Andre du Toit, Rooikoos du Plessis, Adriaan van Wyk, Dion van den Heever, Magiel Burger, Jacques Olivier, Pieter van Deventer and Fritz Naude - have already been convicted of high treason in Pretoria.
The group’s plan entailed chasing all blacks and Indians out of the country after creating chaos, and replacing the government with rightwing Afrikaner military rule. - Additional reporting by Sapa
