ICASA Taken to Court Over Top TV Porn Channels

The Justice Alliance of South Africa (JASA) has filed papers in the Western Cape High Court in a bid to stop Top TV from starting broadcasts of three pornographic channels on 1 December 2013.
 
JASA says it believed the Independent Broadcasting Authority (ICASA) had erred in law in failing to find out that the constitutional rights of children should have trumped Top TV’s rights to freedom of expression.
 
The Alliance also contended that fixing a watershed time of 20h00 ‘flew in the face of common sense’, bearing in mind that most children finished their homework at about 8pm and then watched television for an hour or two until bedtime.
