Advocate Gilbert Marcus SC‚ for the complainants‚ said the SABC’s “blanket ban” of footage portraying violent protests and destruction of property was in defiance of its legal obligations.

“The exercise of any public power must have a legal source. (The SABC has) failed to point to anything (in its reply) that would lawfully entitle it to adopt this policy.”
