On November 21 last year, Eugene de Kock succeeded in the Pretoria High Court in an application for an interim interdict against Christi van der Westhuizen, the author of "White Power & the Rise and Fall of the National Party", and the book's publisher, Zebra Press. The terms of the interdict were draconian: pending the return date - the date upon which van der Westhuizen and Zebra could appear in court to urge that the interim relief should not be made final - they were prohibited from further printing and distributing the book and were ordered to claim back all copies of the book from its distributors.
