Presidential spokesperson Mac Maharaj says the key part of his case against the Mail & Guardian is that the newspaper broke the law.
Editor and reporters have been warned that they are suspected of stealing confidential records in a case brought forward by Mac Maharaj.
M&G editor-in-chief Nic Dawes and investigative reporters Sam Sole and Stefaans Brummer have been told they are suspects in a criminal investigation.
It is now official. The M&G and two of its journalists are under investigation by the Organised Crime Unit.
The Hawks have begun investigating the M&G in connection with charges laid by Mac Maharaj, denying the probe is an abuse of state resources.
Today, the Mail & Guardian will formally ask the head of the NPA to release information allegedly proving Mac Maharaj lied to the Scorpions.
Sam Sole's article 'Gatekeepers accused of predatory tactics' drew responses from Tony Mostert and the Financial Services Board.
SABC3 aired a summary of a harsh BCCSA ruling against it, in favour of the M&G and journalist Sam Sole, on prime-time news on Saturday evening.
The SABC has lost yet another round in its campaign to avoid airing a scathing ruling against it by the BCCSA.
The refusal of the SABC to abide by a ruling of the BCCSA in favour of the M&G is unprecedented, says Nic Dawes.
The SABC will appeal to Icasa to overturn an order directing it to air on prime-time TV a correction of a report maligning M&G journalist Sam Sole.
Broadcaster must now air prime-time apology.
The SABC's quest to appeal a ruling against it has failed and it must now broadcast a summary of the judgment, which vindicates M&G reporter Sam Sole.
The BCCSA denied an appeal by SABC 3 concerning a broadcast in which businessman Robert Gumede alleged an M&G journalist took a bribe.
The SABC must broadcast a stinging reprimand from the BCCSA on prime-time television for failing to give the M&G an adequate right of reply.
When the BCCSA ruled that the SABC had breached its code in reporting unsubstantiated allegations against the M&G, our reaction was delight.
The BCCSA has reprimanded the SABC over an interview it flighted last year, in which John Sterenborg and Sam Sole were accused of corruption.
The SABC and the M&G locked horns before the BCCSA about a broadcast in which Robert Gumede accused a reporter of corruption and racism.
The M&G responds to Robert Gumede's smear campaign against it.
Claims by businessman Robert Gumede that M&G reporter Sam Sole was corrupt are "appalling", noseweek editor Martin Welz says.
