Eyewitness News has learnt that the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) has told the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) to desist from further contravening its ruling on the broadcaster’s ban on the airing of images of destructive protests.

The SABC had claimed it couldn’t comply with Icasa’s judgement because it didn’t know if it was a judgment from its council or only a recommendation of its compliance committee.

In a strongly worded letter directed to the SABC’s attorneys, Icasa says the broadcaster is ordered to rescind its decision regarding the airing of images of violent protests.
