Court rules Qwelane guilty of hate speech

31 May 2011 13:23
NEWSWATCH: Jon Qwelane, former Sunday Sun columnist, has been found guilty of hate speech in the Johannesburg Equality Court, reports, and the DMASA database has allegedly been compromised, reports ITWeb.
For more:
  • Qwelane found guilty... Qwelane - who in one his columns back in 2008 said that calling him "gay" was a no-no - has been found guilty of propagating hatred and causing the gay and lesbian communities emotional pain and suffering.

  • ITWeb: DMASA database 'leaked'... If you are one of the around 39 000 South Africans who got sick and tired of unsolicited offers and signed up with the DMASA's "do not contact" database, you could be at risk of identity theft, it seems. So, be even more careful than you already are in giving out confidential information about yourself.
