The inquest verdict of no one to blame was reversed by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 1998. The Commission’s final report found that ‘the intensive interrogation of Dr Aggett by Major A Cronwright and Lieutenant Stephan Whitehead, and the treatment he received while in detention for more than seventy days were directly responsible for the mental and physical condition of Dr Aggett which led him to take his own life.’ The report also stated that ‘troubling inquests’, such as the one into Aggett’s death, caused the Apartheid regime to find alternative ways of disposing of its opponents, including ‘disappearing’ people.
