Independent Communications Authority of South Africa's (ICASA) response to the South Gauteng High Court decision on the SABC editorial “black-listing” matter
26 Jan 2011
Johannesburg – The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) accepts the ruling of the South Gauteng High Court regarding the SABC editorial “black-listing” matter.
In line with the High Court judgment, the Authority will refer the matter to the Complaints and Compliance Committee (CCC) to probe the matter afresh. The CCC will then convene a new panel to conduct the hearing.
The Authority would like to point out that the decision that the High Court reviewed/overturned was made by the CCC, not by ICASA’s Council.
The CCC is an independent committee of Council or a Tribunal, which draws its panel from esteemed legal professionals, and it is chaired by a Judge of the High Court. The CCC conducts its business independently, and arrives at its decisions independently.
