CASE NUMBER: 03/2017 – DIALE VS SABC3 – ISIDINGO -PRIVACY


Ms.
Diale, the appellant in this matter, appealed against a sanction of a reprimand imposed by the adjudicator on the SABC for the contravention of clause 15(1) dealing with privacy. She argued that a reprimand was not proportional to the emotional harm and verbal abuse she suffered from some SABC3 fans of Isidingo as a result of negligence on the part of the SABC. An agreement was reached to remedy the situation between the SABC and the Complainant. Given the grossness of the act of negligence on the part of the SABC and the impact it had on the privacy of the appellant, the tribunal decided, despite the agreement, to impose a fine on the broadcaster.
