US court allows apartheid claims
Original post made by Sharon on Apr 8, 2009
"A United States judge has ruled that lawsuits can go ahead against several companies accused of helping South Africa's apartheid-era government.
The judge disagreed with IBM's argument that it was not the company's place to tell clients how to use its products.
"That level of wilful blindness in the face of crimes in violation of the law of nations cannot defeat an otherwise clear showing of knowledge that the assistance IBM provided would directly and substantially support apartheid," she said."Web Link
How will this apply to current governments who have a policy of apartheid? as Lieberman FM of Israel proposes.
The past prime minister warned against just this very consequence.
