Resolution 547 (1984) of 13 January 1984
The Security Council,
Having considered the question of the death sentence passed on 6 June 1983 in South Africa on Mr. Malesela
Recalling its resolutions 503 (1982), 525 (1982) and 533 (1983),
Gravely concerned over the current decision of the South African authorities to reject an appeal against the

1. Calls upon the South African authorities to commute the death sentence imposed upon Mr. Maloise;
2. Urges all States and organizations to use their influence and to take urgent measures, in accordance with
the Charter of the United Nations, the resolutions of the Security Council and relevant international instruments,
to save the life of Mr. Malesela Benjamin Maloise.
Adopted unanimously at the 2512th meeting.
