Johannesburg - The Farlam commission of inquiry into the killing of 34 strikers at Lonmin's platinum mine in Marikana resumes in Rustenburg on Monday.
The commission is holding public hearings to determine why police shot and killed 34 miners and wounded 78 on August 16.
Last week, crime scene expert Captain Apollo Mohlaki told the commission that senior police officers met to discuss their operations on the day of the shooting.
He said there were no cartridge cases near nine of the bodies found at a small hill at Wonderkop, Marikana, referred to as “scene two”.
Police found several traditional weapons such as knobkerries, sticks, sharpened iron rods, homemade spears, and a pistol, loaded with 15 rounds, lying among the bodies. Mohlaki could not say whether it had been fired. - Sapa
