SABC brings more charges against journalists – Solidarity

Movement appeals to public to stand firmly behind suspended journalists

SABC brings more charges against three SABC journalists

11 July 2016  

The SABC brought more charges against Foeta Krige, the executive editor of Monitor and Spektrum, journalist Suna Venter and business editor Thandeka Gqubule.

In a letter to the suspended journalists the SABC accuses them of alleged “further misconduct” by having informed the media of their suspensions among other things.

According to Solidarity Chief Executive Dirk Hermann, the SABC’s latest attack on the journalists is totally unacceptable and amounts to even more censorship. “We are urgently appealing to all South Africans to stand firmly behind the suspended journalists to stamp out the SABC’s attack on press freedom,” Hermann said.
