U.S. Supreme Court Blocks Apartheid Victims Battle Against Ford And IBM

AFRICANGLOBE - Ford's US board made key decisions to manufacture specialised vehicles for apartheid security forces in violation of US sanctions and retaliated against employees who took part in anti-apartheid protests. IBM, they say, provided database and information storage services that allowed the apartheid government to implement the race-based classification system. Several of the South Africans in the court case were former employees of Ford who had been arrested and tortured after Ford released information about protest activities to the apartheid government.
