Net widens

The net widened at the trial of three right-wingers charged with the murder of Chris Hani after the court heard evidence extending beyond the first accused, Janusz Walus, to his alleged accomplices, Clive and Gaye Derby-Lewis, John Carlin reports from Johannesburg.

The key state witness in the alleged conspiracy, Arthur Kemp, told the court that over lunch at the Derby-Lewises on 12 April, two days after the assassination of the South African Communist Party leader, Mrs Derby-Lewis had admitted to her involvement.
