Project Coast: Apartheid's Chemical and Biological Warfare Programme

By Chandré Gould; Peter Folb et al. | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

This research has been generously funded by the Ford Foundation, the Norwegian government and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES). The Ploughshares Fund made funds available for monitoring the criminal trial of Dr Wouter Basson. Without their support this report would not have been possible. The research project was hosted by the Centre for Conflict Resolution (CCR).

Members of the international advisory panel which reviewed the product and process of research were a source of support. Their knowledge of the subject have informed the analysis of this unusual chemical and biological warfare programme. The authors would like to thank Prof. Milton Leitenberg, Prof. Julian Perry Robinson, Dr Barbara Hatch Rosenberg, Dr Jean Pascal Zanders, Dr Oliver Thränert and Dr Patricia Lewis. We would also like to thank Patricia Lewis and UNIDIR for publishing this report. And special thanks to Archbishop Emeritus Tutu for his foreword to the book.

In October 1999 members of the international review panel met to discuss the first draft of this report. The meeting was organised by the Centre for Conflict Resolution and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES). The meeting provided the authors with an opportunity to discuss their work and findings and to gain perspective on the programme. We wish to thank FES for their contribution to the meeting, as well as CCR and all those who attended the meeting.

Journalist Peta Thornycroft contributed to the understanding of the use of poisons in Rhodesia in the late 1970s; details thereof in this report are the result of her investigations. Marléne Burger spent more than two years in the Pretoria High Court monitoring the trial of Dr Wouter Basson. Her daily reports are a source of much of the information contained in this report. Marléne Burger was responsible for researching and writing the text pertaining to the relationship between United States gynaecologist, Larry Ford, and Project Coast. This information appears in the chapter entitled International Links.
