CASE NUMBER: 13/2019 – SABC2 VS VAMVAKOS – BALANCE

This is a SABC appeal of Adjudication No: 21/A/2019 between Vamvakos vs SABC2, wherein the adjudicator found that the programme lacked an opposing point of view and was therefore unbalanced and one-sided.  In the main, the SABC argument is that the documentary is made up of archived material and comments from people representing different civil and political organizations. Again, different experts were interviewed for their divergent points of view, not in the studio, but in their different offices. This is not a live studio broadcast but just a putting together of archived recorded material from the past. In the end, the Tribunal found no contravention of Clause 13(1) and the original finding of Adjudication No: 21/A/2019 is thus overturned.
