SABC senior radio producer, Suna Venter, spoke to 702's John Robbie about incidents of intimidation aimed at deterring the eight journalists from pursuing the case.
The journalists, one of them being Vuyo Mvoko, brought the case after being suspended for seeking clarity on the editorial policy of the public broadcaster over concerns of censorship. They were re-instated a few weeks later.
I had my house being broken into twice, just trashed, nothing was stolen. It was clearly a message.— Suna Venter, SABC journalist
She said her house has been broken into twice, her car being shot at four times on a drive home from work and a string of threatening messages sent to her since August.
None of the journalists are receiving police protection.
It would be a waste of taxpayers' money and that would not be fair. So I don't have police protection. None of us are tempted to drop the case.— Suna Venter, SABC journalist
