General Motors to Compensate Apartheid Victims

U.S. automaker General Motors will pay up to $1.5 million to more than 20 apartheid victims for its role in supporting the racist regime in South Africa.

"GM wants to carry on with their business in South Africa and wants to settle their scores and maintain good relations with the country's people," said Shirley Gunn, who was detained and tortured, according to Reuters. "But we are very grateful and can seriously start to redress the legacy of apartheid."
