Ex-Mandela Cop set to be interrogated on apartheid 'secrets'

The policeman hand-picked by former president Nelson Mandela to head an elite investigative team is set to appear in the witness box today to reveal more alleged apartheid-era cover-ups.

Major General Andre Lincoln is expected to be cross-examined in the Western Cape High Court.

Last week Lincoln testified about a number of alleged crimes committed by apartheid-era police, including their involvement in an alleged plot to have Mandela killed at his 1994 inauguration.

He is set to be questioned on this.

The civil case, which commenced a week ago, is developing into one of the most sensational in recent times, exposing apparent major crimes carried out during the early years of democracy.
