sabceNCA reports that former SA Broadcasting Corporation (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 were liable for costs in the case involving the so-called 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.
