Former Bok captain Corne Krige has stopped the release of the Kamp Staaldraad DVD.
Krige, who condemned the infamous camp in his autobiography, reacted to news that the camp organiser and team’s security advisor at the time (Adriaan Heijns) had launched a website promoting the sale of the DVD.
The DVD is said to show the Boks naked.
Krige, Schalk Burger and Werner Greeff secured a court order stopping the release of DVD.
“We’ve stopped him from selling and releasing the DVD for the time being,” Krige told News24.com on Monday. “The players all feel there is no way that our naked bodies are going to appear on DVD. We’ve stopped it thanks to the help of several high profile people and hopefully we’ll get a permanent court order in the next few weeks.”
One of the high-profile people who helped Krige his said to be Johan Rupert.
The controversial camp was part of the Springboks’ build-up to the 2003 World Cup and revelations of the camp led to coach Rudolf Straeuli’s resignation.
