      [The following commentary is from TAU, the largest agricultural union in
      South Africa. They say, that this amnesty for criminals will result in
      40,000 being set free. All the news releases so far, have not mentioned
      an actual figure. This is the first time I have seen someone estimating
      the number. If most South Africans knew this figure, they would probably
      get a heart attack. Jan]

      AMNESTY FOR CRIMINALS

      The amnesty for all convicted criminals creates the potential that
      countless stock thieves will soon be free again.

      The President of TAU SA, Mr Paul van der Walt, says that the approval of
      President Mbeki in this regard, bodes ill for stock farmers. It is
      expected that approximately 40,000 criminals will benefit from the
      amnesty. Notwithstanding efforts to ensure proper orientation prior to
      release, economical realities will force many of those criminals to
      revert to crime.
