sabcNews24 reports that the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) will appeal Tuesday’s Labour Court order that it must reinstate four journalists that were recently dismissed, and will not allow them back into their offices.  

The court ruled on Tuesday that four of the eight SABC journalists that were recently axed by the broadcaster must be reinstated.  It also ruled they were entitled to return to work and interdicted the SABC from proceeding with the disciplinary hearings that the four were facing before they were dismissed.  Solidarity's Dirk Hermann tweeted that the union would file urgent court papers to get the four journalists back to work pending the SABC's appeal.
