I was first introduced to the concept of “selective prosecution” 13 years ago when I attended a course on investigative journalism at the Institute for the Advancement of Journalism (IAJ) in Johannesburg.

The person who introduced me to this concept was a feisty Dutch journalist with flaming red hair and a passion for the truth. Her name was Evelyn Groenink and she spent a large part of her career investigating the political assassination of ANC activist Dulcie September in Paris in 1988.
