ICASA Takes TopTV to Court

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has filed for an urgent court interdict to stop pay TV operator, TopTV, from pushing through its porn plans until ICASA has held a public hearing.

ICASA, in charge of regulating South Africa's broadcasting industry including pay TV operators, threatened that it will take TopTV to court to prevent the pay TV operator from unilaterally starting a new stand-alone pornographic package for which it has no approval certificate.

Zim Activist Acquitted of Porn Charges

A Zimbabwean gay rights activist, Ignatius Mhambi, was found not guilty of pornography charges after a police raid in May on his group's offices.

Mhambi’s lawyer, Jeremiah Bamu, points out that, "The prosecution failed to establish a case against him at the close of their submissions on Friday and the magistrate acquitted him."

Mhambi, an accountant for Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe, was arrested together with office administrator, Ellen Chademana, during the raid.
