HRC asks FF Plus to assist with investigation into hate speech against President Jacob Zuma

The Human Rights Commission (HRC) has now asked the FF Plus to provide information that would assist with their investigation into a complaint of hate speech against president Jacob Zuma, following his comments about Jan van Riebeeck in January 2015.

President Zuma said, amongst others, that the country’s problems only started with the arrival of Jan van Riebeeck and that many struggles, wars, deaths, land grabbing and the expropriation of indigenous people’s political and economic power followed this.

The HRC, last week in a letter addressed to the FF Plus, said that the party was the second complainant in the hate speech investigation. The first complainant was given until 29 April to provide the HRC with additional information with regards to the complaint, upon the request of President Zuma.

The FF Plus offered to become the first complainant, should the first complainant fail to provide further information. The offer was accepted, and the FF Plus will now be assisting the HRC with their investigation, by providing the necessary information, Adv. Alberts said.
