JCAC upholds decision that Mogoeng Mogoeng must apologise for Israel comments

The Judicial Conduct Appeals Committee (JCAC) on Thursday directed former Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng to apologize for his comments regarding the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

The committee also confirmed an earlier finding that Mogoeng had breached a section of the Judicial Code of Conduct by getting involved in a political controversy.

The decision comes after Mogoeng appealed an earlier finding, written by Judge Phineas Mojapelo following a complaint by three organisations: Africa4Palestine, SABDS Coalition and Women’s Cultural Group.

The lobby groups lodged a complaint against Mogoeng, arguing that his comments in support of Israel were unbecoming of a person in his position.

Mogoeng retired from the Judiciary last year.
