Social Justice Coalition shaken by threat
Dustin Kramer says he’s approached the police upon receiving the text on Friday.
CAPE TOWN - The Deputy General Secretary of the Social Justice Coalition (SJC) has admitted he's shaken following a threat he's received via SMS.
The SJC's Dustin Kramer says he's approached the police upon receiving the text on Friday, which demands he "forces" two murder-accused who are members of the SJC to admit to a killing.
Kramer's colleagues and longstanding activists Angy Peter and Isaac Mbadu are both on trial for the kidnapping and murder of Rowan du Pree in 2012.
The two maintain they're innocent, saying they've been framed for exposing corrupt police.
Kramer says police are looking into the matter.
"I've opened a case of intimidation at the police. Police have said that they will now investigate to see whether they can establish the source of the threat as well as the legitimacy of the threat. We are taking it seriously."
