General Assembly - 7 dicembre 1982
RESOLUTION A37R068
A/RES/37/68

7 December 1982

Further appeal for clemency in favour of South African freedom fighters

The General Assembly,

Having been informed that the appeal against the death sentences imposed on 19 August 1981 on Mr. Anthony Tsotsobe, Mr. Johannes Shabangu and Mr. David Moise, members of the African National Congress of South Africa, has been rejected by the appellate division,

Recalling its resolution 36/172 J of 17 December 1981, in particular its demand that the racist regime of South Africa refrain from the execution of persons sentenced under arbitrary repressive laws for acts arising from opposition to apartheid,

Deeply concerned that the South African authorities have not yet heeded the General Assembly's appeal for clemency contained in its resolution 37/1 of 1 October 1982 in favour of three other South African freedom fighters, namely Mr. Simon Mogoerane, Mr. Jerry Mosololi and Mr. Marcus Motaung,

Considering that the continued repression against and executions of opponents of apartheid are bound to have grave repercussions,

1. Calls upon the South African authorities not to proceed with the execution of the six above-mentioned freedom fighters and to commute the death sentences as soon as possible;

2. Recommends that the Security Council should direct an appeal for clemency to the South African authorities not to proceed with the execution of the six above-mentioned members of the African National Congress of South Africa;

3. Requests the Secretary-General to transmit the present resolution to the South African authorities immediately and to report on the matter to the General Assembly not later than 15 December 1982.
