Government lawyer threatens 'CKGR tour'

Sidney Pilane, the government's principal lawyer in the Bushmen relocation court case, today threatened to submit an application for the court to tour the Central Kalahari Game Reserve again.

If approved, the move would cause further long delays to a trial that has already lasted almost one year. 

Mr Pilane said he might make an application to tour Gope (a Bushman community from which the people were evicted, that is also the site of a huge diamond find) 'if speculation that relocation was made for mining activities persist'.
