In a case of land restitutio­n

The racially discrimina­tory manner in which the removals were carried out is also relevant … There was in fact no resort to civil process to secure the removals, something which in my view would never have been contemplat­ed by the church or the state in respect of a large group of white persons which it wished to evict. When the removals were carried out, many people were arrested. Children were separated from their parents … I simply cannot see white children whose evictions might have been sought for any reason being treated in this way. Kranspoort Community Re: Farm Kranspoort 48, Land Claims Court, December 10 1999
