I resigned from Sunday Times because I couldn't breathe - Pearlie Joubert
CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies speaks to Pearlie Joubert, a journalist who was formerly with the Sunday Times.
She resigned from the Sunday Times in January 2015 because she "was not willing to be party to practices at the Sunday Times" which she believed "to have been unethical and immoral”.
This was in reference to the coverage the newspaper had given to the "Sars rogue unit".
She explains what led to her resigning at The Sunday Times.

People like Ivan Pillay, Adrian Lackay and Johan van Loggenberg they are people that I know, they are not my friends. They were hounded out of a state institution that is dealing with taxpayers money.Pearlie Joubert, Former journalist at Sunday Times
I received a series of emails from a person that I still don't know who it is - who said I am a whistleblower at Sars ... I thought I can't share this with my colleagues because I don't trust them.Pearlie Joubert, Former journalist at Sunday Times
