The Treatment Action Campaign would like to inform the public and the media that it refuses to waste public resources in dignifying Anthony Brink's lunatic call for the International Criminal Court to prosecute its chairperson Zackie Achmat.
Anthony Brink's actions serve only to insult the rationality of all sane people and the difficult experiences of millions of people who live with HIV/AIDS in the world. We therefore ask that the media not to call our organization for comment on this as this is our official comment.
Our organization is currently preoccupied with preparations for mobilizing public support for the efforts of the South African National AIDS Council (SANAC) and government to develop a new plan for managing the HIV and AIDS epidemic and saving lives in our country. We will not be distracted in this task. TAC will make public its plans to support the development of South Africa's 2007-2011 National Strategic Plan for HIV/AIDS in the coming weeks
