THE National Society for Human Rights has added a second addendum to its original submission to the International Criminal Court after threats against it intensified.

NSHR executive director Phil ya Nangoloh confirmed to The Namibian that the second addendum was submitted on September 28 last year and contained information relating to death threats against individuals working for the organisation.

Such threats, Ya Nangolo said, followed The Namibian's report in July last year in which it was revealed that the NSHR had approached the ICC to hold former President Sam Nujoma and three others accountable for people who went missing in the care of Swapo and the Government before and after Independence.
