SAHRC: Adam Catzavelos has hate speech case to answer to in Equality Court
In the video, Adam Catzavelos used the K-word to refer to black people while on holiday on a Greek island in 2018.
The charges relate to comments he made last year on social media. He openly expressed his excitement at seeing no black people at a beach in Greece. In that video, he referred to black people by the K-word.
He appeared in the Randburg Magistrates Court on Tuesday, where the matter was postponed, allowing him time to obtain legal representation.
The commission’s Buang Jones said: “The discrimination claim is separate from the criminal case. He will face a criminal case for his conduct. For the discrimination claim, we’re asking for compensation, a public apology and he must undergo racial diversity training.”
