SANEF Protests the Arrest of Journos

The South African National Editors' Forum has added its voice to those condemning police for arresting two journalists while they were carrying out normal reporting duties

The South African National Editors' Forum (SANEF) has added its voice to those condemning police for arresting two journalists while they were carrying out normal reporting duties.

In a press statement, SANEF points out that, "Even more alarming was the police confiscation of the journalists' cellphones and other equipment which was handed back only after the intervention of a lawyer."

The organisation states: "The fact that the equipment was returned to the journalists after a lawyer had intervened suggests that the police acted illegally in taking the equipment and were probably engaged in a fishing expedition to try to gather information or evidence about a potential crime - totally unacceptable conduct."
