Icasa’s decision is a only recommendation, not ruling.

The South African Broadcasting Corporation told the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa that it does not believe that its ruling on the broacasters’s decision not to air visuals of destructive protests actually constitutes an order.

It sent a formal letter to the communications regulator, claiming that the judgment it has been given, appears to only be a recommendation and not a ruling.

In a formal letter to Icasa, the SABC’s lawyers say the judgment they have been given is from Icasa’s complaints commission, which makes recommendations to Icasa’s council.

On Monday, Icasa said the SABC had to immediately rescind its editorial policy change that said it would no longer show images of violent and destructive protests.
