Boeremag accountant guilty of treason

2012-07-31 14:13

Pretoria - An accountant who was to be in charge of taking over Pretoria during a planned rightwing coup was found guilty of treason by the city's High Court on Tuesday.

Adriaan van Wyk, a former recce and major in the Wonderboom Commando, was the fourth of the 20 Boeremag treason trial accused to be convicted.

Judge Eben Jordaan rejected Van Wyk's claim that he was innocent and that police informer JC Smit had drawn him into the Boeremag's activities.

Jordaan ruled that Smit was a reliable witness and not a provocateur who had drawn rightwingers into an engineered plot for money, as some of the accused claimed.

Van Wyk claimed Smit, a former friend and hunting buddy, had a grudge against him.

Van Wyk's claims that he had merely attended meetings at which self-defence in case of a massive black-on-white attacks was discussed, were also rejected.

Jordaan said Van Wyk had attended several meetings at which a coup was planned and discussed and it was impossible that he did not have knowledge of the plot.

Inner circle


He had been part of the Boeremag's inner circle and featured prominently in Boeremag leader Mike du Toit's war plan known as Document 12.

His name also appeared as, among other things, a military commander and the "Director General of Land Rights" in a document setting out the post-revolution rightwing Cabinet.

Jordaan said though Van Wyk had been described as a "weak" member of the Boeremag, it was clear that he had been a trusted member of the Boeremag's inner circle.

Mike du Toit had even described him as a "pillar of strength" for the coup.

He said Van Wyk had, as a member of the Wonderboom commando, sworn allegiance to the Republic and had forsaken his duty to report the coup plot to the authorities.

Van Wyk was drawn into the plan when he was asked to form a "shadow" commando to take over police stations, military installations and petrol stations during the coup.

He was later appointed as a member of the Boeremag's management and as leader of the Boeremag's central combat force.

Van Wyk was also tasked with blowing up military vehicles and taking over Pretoria during the coup.

Judgment continues.

      @warmonger - they say history repeats itself...seems in SA's case, it might happen sooner than expected!

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-31 15:08

      Those idiots must now beg a black man for parole, interesting turn of events. They should be fed to the lions!!!

      Brave warriors with a very limited thinking ability… Tried to do the impossible… Now paying the price…

      chaplinncharlie - 2012-07-31 15:30

      Peter they don't have to beg for anything or any black or white man... They have to beg the law... Strange the laws which the White man put in place for security and safety in this country... Just a pity our Current Government battle to up keep this law...

    I sure wish I could see this judge's bank account. All for treason and then what? 119 years like Nel? In order to proof what?

      teddy.beer.319 - 2012-07-31 14:56

      What's ur point? You commit or you are an accessory to crime, you pay. You want the judge to present his own evidence or create his own laws? You have no shame.

      warmonger.everlast - 2012-07-31 14:58

      Rather no 'shame' than no "brain"....

      teddy.beer.319 - 2012-07-31 15:09

      This molerat calling himself 'warmonger' is frothing on the mouth for what? You really believe you are special don't you? Your mother suckled you for too long. People who have never been through a war talk and behave like you. Let me warn you buddy: Being good at a Playstation wargame doesn't make you a combatant. A few kids with a spoon can make you soil your pants in Soweto. Stop fooling yourself.

    One by one the boermag dung beetles go down. How I wish they could be handed over to Uncle Bob, he was definitely going to teach them how to behave. I agree with people who say ANC is incompetent, because these hogs are still smiling. They should have made their lives a living hell, confiscate all their assets and hand them over to the state, bloody cockroaches! To save the taxpayer’s money just necklace these losers.

  • BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-07-31 15:58

    It's not the right or left wing radicals that anyone need fear, nor the big mouths who shout their abuse and try and intimidate, nor the self acclaimed 'war vets' etc etc. All these people are predictable, and besides a big noise, not much to worry about. Rather worry about the ordinary man in the street. These are the people who collectively hold enormous financial and intellectual power. I would suggest some people try and think first before comparing how long their swords are, and stop shouting abuse at each other. Here's a hint - the first sign of a professional combatant is that they're quiet, they don't make big noises on little news 24 blogs. So to those acting as if you're some kind of war vet - go home, and grow up!! These radicals were caught and they'll walk a long road now for their sins. That's it. Don't take sides and get abusive towards each other. The normal reaction incidentally, is to stand together and condemn any such activity from any quarter.

      themba.thwala.98 - 2012-07-31 16:01

      I'll drink to those words ... Cheers Big Chief!

  • DB - 2012-07-31 16:01

    WOW, the sheer amount of thinly veiled racism in the comments is amusing. Big words from some clearly idiotic individuals just illustrates the sheer task ahead should our country ever truly try to strive for a better future for all.

  • ntsieni1 - 2012-07-31 16:12

    they're such a disgrace to their own children,don't u think that u had caused so much depression on their child,,,u deserve to be thrown in the middle of the ocean,,,they will never eat pap n vleis

  • stephen.reeves.908 - 2012-07-31 16:12

    This "accountant" should also be made to pay the portion of his studies that the government paid back to the state, seeing as he was so hell bent on destroying it. Times like these I join warmonger et al. in calling back the death penalty. Treason=Hanging! Viva South Africa! Viva Peace! Viva uBuntu!

  • ako.gutshwa.7 - 2012-07-31 16:27

    As much as we are not happy about ANC leadership which involve corruption, lack of service delivery,the high rate of unemployment.......etc but I don't think I'm ready to go back to the situation boeremag wants to take us back to I had enough of that situation. Not to say I'm against whites ruling party but it must be democratically elected. It's very difficult to live under a situation where you are discriminated because of the colour of your skin. They must rot in jail

  • beki.khumalo - 2012-07-31 16:29

    Racism is such a potent drug! Intelligent beings lose all ability to reason. How did an accountant give in to such an idiotic plan?

      themba.thwala.98 - 2012-07-31 16:37

      Mzilikazi kaMashoba! Wayibeka indaba. One cannot be educated and be stupid at the same time. Mina I think this guy is a pseudo~accountant who bought his “degree” on line. But if he is indeed an accountant, his accounting skills will come in handy as he debits and credits the days he and his buddies will be spending in Maximum Security section at Pretoria Sentraal Gevangenis ... Lol
