GALLERY: Eugene De Kock and the TRC

Eugene De Kock was a former member of the South African Police and operated during apartheid. Nicknamed “Prime Evil” by the press during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) hearings. De Kock was the commander of C1, the South African Police counterinsurgency unit, notoriously known as Vlakplas where he was involved in the kidnapping, torture and murder of numerous anti-apartheid activists from the 1980s to the early-90s. De Kock recently made news when he was denied parole.
