Clay Beattie, commander of the Canadian peacekeeping contingent, said Tuesday United Nations troops will be moved quickly to safe areas on the island in the event of further major fights between Greek-and Turkish-Cypriots. "We will try to avoid and avert hostilities to a he said in an interview shortly after the UN force was placed on a high-level alert in the wake of faltering Geneva ceasefire talks among Britain, Greece and Turkey. "But we will use all means possible to ensure, in the event that major hostilities cannot be avoided, that our forces are moved to safe he added. Comments by the 46-year- old Canadian followed statements by a UN spokesman that the peace force now is on a high state of readiness as a result of Geneva tensions. The UN force has three stages of orange and red. Sources said the peacekeepers now are under an orange alert, which means soldiers must carry live am- munition with them and move to locations where they can be reached quickly. But despite the preparations, senior military leaders here remained op- timistic that a political solu- tion to the current crisis will be found. High-ranking sources said the UN force made clear to the Turks what might happen on the island should a Courts discover flaw in hated pass laws By MARTIN DICKSON JOHANNESBURG (Reuter) South African courts have just revealed a considerable flaw in one of the country's most bitterly resented apartheid pass laws which control the movement of blacks in "white" areas. The pass laws are designed primarily to prevent rural Af- ricans from flooding into the cities in search of non-exis- tent jobs, and basic to their application are the identi- fication papers which all blacks over the age of 16 must possess. The papers must be pro- duced on demand when an Af- rican is challenged by the po- lice and if the man's particu- lars are not in order he will be tried, fined or jailed and in many cases sent back to his tribal homeland. Police enforce the regu- lations with a zeal which crit- ics consider excessive: Mass raids on African townships are commonplace while even in the centre of Johannesburg whole streets can be sealed off ana every black man in them brusquely ordered to show his papers. Even the quiet of the city's affluent, white suburbs can be shattered by the sight of Afri- cans in headlong flight from the police trucks used to round up pass law offenders. Most Africans carry their passes on them at all times. But there is nothing in law to say that a black must carry his papers on his fact which has just been highlighted by a court case in Natal province. In June, 1972, an African liv- ing in Durban, Mandlakise Zikalala, was arrested and charged with failing to pro- duce his pass. He spent the night in a po- lice cell and was fined two rand the next day. But Zikalala then took the un- precedented step of suing for false imprisonment both the constable who arrested him and the minister of police. He argued that he had left his pass book in a drawer at work and had offered to take the constable there to see it, but the offer was ignored. UPHELD BY COURT The Natal Appeal Court up- held his case and awarded him 200 rand in damages. The court accepted a sub- mission that an offence was only committed under the Pass Laws Act if the African failed to produce his refer- ence book "within such time as is reasonable." The judgment was hailed a "breakthrough against racial persecution" by Chief Gatsha Buthelezi, leader of the Zulus. But the rejoicing may turn out to be short-lived. First, the legal position is still con- fused and men are still being fined for not producing their passes on the spot. Second, the government may close the legal loophole so that Africans will have to keep their papers on them all the time. This is the forecast of Sheena Duncan, Johannes- burg director of the Black Sash organization, a group which strongly criticizes the pass laws and helps rehabili- tate its victims. The government has not re- vealed its intentions, although Police Minister James Kruger said more stringent legisla- tion may be necessary. PREDICTS COLLAPSE Mrs. Duncan said the sys- tem could not cope if many of the people prosecuted annually for pass law offences asked to be taken several miles by the police to get their reference books. "The whole administration would collapse if the Natal judgment is left as it she said. Measures to prevent an un- wanted flow of blacks into white areas have been in force in South Africa since the earliest days of European oc- cupation. In 1760, for instance, a regulation required every slave going "from the town to the country or from the coun- try to the town" to carry a pass authorizing the journey signed by his owner. But over the years the regu- lations have become more on- erous and more strictly en- forced, particularly since the ruling National Party came to power in 1948. Both the theory behind the pass laws and their imple- mentation by the police have long been a major source of grievance among Africans, who during the 1950s mounted a series of unsuccessful cam- paigns to have the system abolished. The laws remain and so does the bitterness. Secret police call off revolt LISBON (AP) Nearly 600 former Portuguese political police agents called off a prison revolt after an angry crowd gathered outside the prison shouting: "Death to the secret police." The former PIDE agents re- turned to their colls night as the crowd outside be- gan scuffling with riot police patrolling the area. Army un- its replaced the police as tempers rose. PIDE is the Portuguese acr- onym for International Police for the Defence of the State, the political police organiza- tion for the government that was overthrown April 25. The former PIDE men took over part of the prison Sunday night and demanded they be put on trial. They also said that one of them had died because he was not given medical treatment, but prison officials denied this. COVERS VAST ARUA The province of Quebec cov- ers some square miles, equal to the combined area of Britain, France and the nine northeastern United States. man Turkish force camped outside this city attempt to take over Nicosia by force. It would be a violent, vicious fight, one source said. If the Turks try to extend their ground in a line from Nicosia to Famagusta, they can be certain the Greek National Guard will do as much damage as possible in other parts of the island. Other sources said the UN is well aware of the possible magnitude of the problem if the talks end in failure. UN sources feel certain, however, that neither side would conduct an outright at- tack on UN force, though one source suggested the Turks might try to outflank troops in such sensitive areas as the now-closed Nicosia airport. Canadians patrol that site, as well as the city itself. The source suggested the Turkish army might attempt to sur- round the airport and force an evacuation. "But I don't belie ve they would actually at- tack Canadian he added. In the event of an attack, the UN force has the right to de- fend itself. But though the force has increased as a result of recent reinforcements from all countries participating in the peacekeeping assignment, they are still heavily out- numbered by the Turks. Canada has 948 troops on the island, second only to Britain's Austrians, Danes, Finns and Swedes make up the bulk of the remaining men.
