Former apartheid security branch police member Jan Rodrigues is facing a sexual assault case brought by his daughter, Tilana Stander.

Rodrigues is accused of killing anti-apartheid activist Ahmed Timol. Stander says she endured her father’s continual abuse 40 years ago.

She alerted her family about the attacks when she was in high school, but they refused to believe her.

The organisation Women and Men against Child Abuse is assisting Stander.
