Paddy Kearny, director of the Diakonia Ecumenical Church Agency, was detained in 1985 and released in response to an application filed by Archbishop Denis Hurley arguing that the detention violated the provision of the Internal Security Act requiring that there be 'reason to believe' that he was guilty of a security offence. Kearney later successfully sued for wrongful arrest and detention. Born: 1942 in Pietermaritzburg. Interviewed: 1985 in Durban.
