Marikana commission resumes on Monday

The Farlam Commission of Inquiry has announced it will resume hearings on Monday.  The Commission is probing the deaths of 44 people during strike-related violence at Lonmin’s Marikana mine in August last year.  The hearings are only set to start at 2pm to allow police members to attend the funeral of the mother of their senior counsel.  Last Wednesday, retired judge Ian Farlam said, its proceedings had been delayed due to translations, many witnesses and problems with funding.
