The high court on Wednesday heard that the targets on the backs of Dr Neil Aggett and his girlfriend, Dr Elizabeth Floyd, may have originated from a list of “close comrades” compiled by anti-apartheid activist Barbara Hogan, now a former cabinet minister.

The list had apparently landed with the security branch of the police, sparking an interest in the young couple.
