The World Responds

International protests and a U.N. embargo on arms placed Biko’s death onto the global stage. Many rejected the alleged cause (a hunger strike) of his death. It was not until two decades later that a police colonel and four officers admitted the true cause of his death to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and were ultimately denied amnesty in 1999.
