Cape Town - The Independent Communications Authority of SA (Icasa) on Wednesday said the SABC has agreed to abide by the order to withdraw the ban on broadcasting violent protests.

Icasa spokesperson Paseka Maleka told News24 that the broadcaster will abide by the order of its council as issued on July 11.

The SABC was indicted on Wednesday from following through with its protest policy by the High Court in Pretoria, following an application by the Helen Suzman Foundation (HSF).

SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago told News24 earlier on Wednesday that the SABC could not respond to Icasa's order within the prescribed seven days until the HSF's court application was heard in the High Court.
