Sen. Simon responded to reporters' questions in the U.S. Capitol concerning the end of economic sanctions against South Africa, announced earlier in the day at a White House press conference. Sen. Simon criticized the president’s move, saying the five conditions allowing the removal of sanctions as stated in the 1986 Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act had not been fulfilled. He said opponents of the lifting of sanctions did not have the numbers to override a presidential veto of legislation mandating additional economic sanctions. He also briefly commented on the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court Nominee and U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Clarence Thomas. He said it appeared likely that Judge Thomas would be confirmed. close
