Fruit of a Poisoned Tree, Altbeker, Antony

2000336: Fruit of a Poisoned Tree
All items are shipped from South Africa. We will email postage options for your approval prior to dispatch Paperback. English. Publisher: Jonathan Ball. 2011. In faircondition. It was the most sensational murder trial of the past two decades. For ten months during 2007, Fred van der Vyver stood trial, accused of using an ornamental hammer to bludgeon his girlfriend Inge Lotz to death. When the trial began in February 2007, a guilty verdict seemed certain: the police had found his fingerprints at the scene, the alleged murder weapon had been found in his car, and a blood stain on the bathroom floor had been matched to one of his shoes. Yet, after a high-profile trial, in which some of the world's leading forensic investigators testified, and which cost his family more that R10 million, Van der Vyver was acquitted. But the story is far from over. Dubbed by an American expert as 'perhaps the worst case of forensic evidence fabrication in history', it has already attracted the attention of the world's largest association of professional forensic investigators. The outcome of the trial, however, was rejected by the family of Inge Lotz, who have only recently withdrawn a law suit against him. His career in tatters, Van der Vyver, in turn, is suing the Minister of Police for nearly R50 million, alleging that all the evidence against him was fabricated by detectives. Acclaimed author Antony Albeker sat through the entire trial and, in Fruit of a Poisoned Tree, he explores the extraordinary circumstances in which the justice system failed both Fred van der Vyver and Inge Lotz. Part courtroom drama, part investigative journalism, Altbeker enters the heart of the challenges confronting the judicial system in South Africa today.

Bandiet Out Of Jail, Lewin, Hugh
7 Lewin, Hugh
2000468: Bandiet Out Of Jail
All items are shipped from South Africa. We will email postage options for your approval prior to dispatch Paperback. English. Umuzi Press. 2013. In good condition. 'In 1964, the security police in Johannesburg detained Hugh Lewin. He was later tried and convicted on charges of sabotage. He spent seven years in prison, secretly recording his experiences, and those of his fellow inmates, on the pages of his Bible. On release, rather than submit to 24-hour arrest, he left South Africa on a one-way visa. One of the finest ever examples of prison writing from South Africa, Bandiet was originally released during Hugh Lewin's exile, and published by Random House in 1978. Selected poems and journalism interspersed with line-drawings by another of Pretoria's inmates, Jock Strachan, appear alongside a freshly typeset version of the complete text of the original book ... In Bandiet Out of Jail the full text of the original is re-published as well as stories that were originally excluded to avoid problems for the author's colleagues. Previously unpublished poems by Lewin and his description of his experiences with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission offer unique insights into changes in the political and emotional landscape since Lewin's return in 1992. Bandiet Out of Jail contains the original prison illustrations by Harold Strachan, (twice a fellow bandiet with Lewin in Pretoria), as well as several new drawings by Strachan, done especially for this book.'-- Publisher's note.
