Sakharov predicts downfall of Gorbachev
From Associated Press reports
PARIS Soviet President Mik
hail Gorbachev probably will be
ousted because he has failed to seek
popular support in direct elections,
Andrei Sakharov and his wife were
quoted as saying in an interview
"The conservatives will overthrow
Gorbachev or at least impose their
views on him," the conservative
French daily Le Figaro quoted
Sakharov, the dean of the Soviet
human rights movement, as saying.
South African judge.
From Associated Press reports
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
A member of Parliament said
Thursday she will seek the impeach
ment of a judge for his lenient
treatment of a white farmer who tied
a black man to a tree and beat him
to death over two days.
Helen Suzman, the longest-serving
Parliament member from the anti
apartheid Progressive Federal Party,
said the sentence imposed in
November by Justice J.J. Strydom
was "outrageously lenient." She said
she would propose his impeachment
after Parliament opens Feb. 3.
On Wednesday, the Johannesburg
Bar Council, in a rare denunciation
of a judicial decision, said it was

with fists and sticks over a two-day

The incident occurred in the north

economy, the paper reported.

Peace Prize in 1975, said the West

the rashness which goes with it, plus
a small amount of liquor abuse, which
landed Vorster in this problem
The bar council said there was little
or no grounds for the judge to
consider those factors in mitigation
of sentence. The council noted that
Vorster "was 22 years old at the time
of the crime and farmed on his own
farm. The record shows that liquor
had at most a minimal effect."
The council also took note of
Strydom's references to the "embar
rassment" Vorster would suffer, since
he would have to state on passport
forms and gun license applications he
had been convicted of a crime.
The judge was also denounced for
blaming Sambo partially for his own
death. Strydom referred to an inci
dent two months before the slaying
in which Sambo, working then for
Vorster's father, turned on a tractor
after being warned two puppies were
nearby. He maimed one puppy and

Strydom said if Sambo had heeded
the warning, he would not have

and he would not have been killed.
South African criminal law does
not specify maximum sentences,
leaving that to the judge. But the head
of the bar council, Max Labe, said
Vorster should have been given a
"substantial" prison term. Labe said
in an interview that culpable hom

10 years but that this killing was

a belief that such a crime could merit

abiding citizen would be safe from
violent and callous killers," the
council said in a unanimous decision.
