Judgment has been reserved in the contempt of court case brought against AfriForum's Deputy CEO Ernst Roets.
JOHANNESBURG - Judge Colin Lamont has reserved judgment in a case involving the apartheid flag.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation went to court after AfriForum's deputy CEO posted a photo of the old flag on Twitter.
He did so after a court ruled that it's hate speech to display the flag gratuitously.
AfriForum has argued in court that Roets was only asking a question as part of his PhD research.
They added that it was a personal tweet and had nothing to do with AfriForum.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation says it’s in court on two principles: Constitutional value and non-racialism.
Therefore, AfriForum must be held accountable.
Judgment has been reserved in this case.
Meanwhile, AfriForum plans to appeal the original ruling on the flag.
