Justice and Correctional Services minister Ronald Lamola says the cases of Truth and Reconciliation Commission have dragged on because they were not prioritised.

Lamola had been briefing parliament’s justice portfolio committee.

The NPA has been dealing with several cases linked to apartheid crimes, such as that of the Cradock Four- Matthew Goniwe, Fort Calata, Sparrow Mkhonto and Sicelo Mhlauli.

The families of some of the Cradock Four had taken the National Prosecuting Authority to court to get a firm commitment with time frames to resolve the matter.

The NPA’s next deadline is 13th December, thereafter the Fort Calata Foundation, led by Calata’s son Lukhanyo, has threatened to pursue litigation.

Lamola says there are many reasons why these cases have not been given priority in the past, but now there is a focused effort.
