SascocTMG Digital reports that a panel is to investigate the sexual harassment claims against SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) CEO Tubby Reddy by a female employee.  

But while the board was discussing the matter on Monday‚ the female employee said an e-mail sent from her Sascoc account withdrawing the charge against Reddy and claiming it was "an orchestration" by Sascoc president Gideon Sam had not been sent by her.  Several minutes later the employee sent out another e-mail, denying she had issued the earlier one‚ saying "someone has hacked my computer".  In her original letter of complaint dated 21 April, the complainant detailed "inappropriate conduct" by Reddy.  An independent panel will now be put together to hear both sides and advise the board.  Reddy has denied the sexual harassment claim.
