Motsoeneng may have to fork out more than R1m.

PRETORIA – Former SABC chief operations officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng may have to cough up more than R1-million in legal fees after a Labour Court ruling on Friday.

The court ruled that Motsoeneng, former news group executive Simon Tebele and the broadcaster itself are liable for costs in the case involving the SABC 8.

The eight journalists successfully challenged their dismissals for challenging the public broadcaster's editorial policy.
Trade union Solidarity applied for the cost order.

It estimates the total legal expenses at more than R1-million, but Motsoeneng is to appeal the decision against him.

Culled from ENCA.
