Let us return ... to Wouter Basson. The acquitted doctor started practicing again as a cardiologist at Pretoria Academic Hospital (formerly Hendrik Verwoerd Hospital, named after the apartheid ideologist) and has been working there without interruption since 1994. In spite of the repeated protests of certain of his colleagues, the man that the newspapers baptized as "our country's Dr. Mengele" is on the payroll of the Gauteng Province Health Department and has been kept on in the official organization of the Health Professions Council. For many of those men and women with whom I talked this over in the neighborhoods of Johannesburg and the provinces of South Africa, particularly after the conclusion of his trial, the fact he is so protected raises painful doubts about the permanence of shady connections between the regime of yesterday and the powers of today.
