CASE NO: 23/2014 – REYNEKE, MOODLEY AND VAN HEERDEN-94.7 HIGHVELD STEREO-COMMENT

Complaints were received arguing that profane language used by a radio anchor during a broadcast radio
at 06:20 on 9 June 2014 was unacceptable and in conflict with the Broadcasting Code.

The Tribunal held that although the words used were in severely questionable taste, they did not amount to hate speech, which requires advocacy and incitement. Harm was present, but that was not sufficient.

The Complaints were, accordingly, not upheld.
