JOHANNESBURG - Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng intends to appeal the Judicial Conduct Committee ruling that he apologise for his pro-Israel comments.

During a webinar hosted by The Jerusalem Post last year, he cited Biblical references to justify his comments.

Africa 4 Palestine, SA Boycott Disinvestments and Sanctions Coalition and Women's CulturalGroup, laid complaints about Mogoeng's comments.

They argued Mogoeng's remarks contravened the judicial ethical rules.

A statement released by the Judicial Conduct Committee says a date for the appeal is yet to be

set, and will be heard by at least three of its members.
