Mostly sunny. Cool.
The former Bishops teacher accused of sexual misconduct is still under medical care, her lawyer has said after the school released a statement on the findings of its investigation.
The Bishops Diocesan College principal has been interviewed as the probe into serious misconduct allegations against a female teacher got under way.
It's the scandal that rocked Bishops Diocesan College in Rondebosch, Cape Town, this week: a 30-year old teacher is accused of having an illicit relationship with an 18-year-old matric pupil.
The lawyer for former Bishops Diocesan College teacher Fiona Viotti, who is accused of serious sexual misconduct involving a pupil, says he is investigating a reported leak of an alleged lewd video of her, and has warned that sharing it is illegal.
The teacher who resigned amid allegations of a sexual relationship with a pupil at the Bishops Diocesan College in Rondebosch is the niece of former Springbok player and coach Nick Mallett, according to reports.
Bishops Diocesan College in Cape Town says an independent investigation into sexual misconduct by a former teacher has found at least five pupils were targeted.
Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Basic Education says that while an 18-year-old Bishops Diocesan College pupil involved in a reported relationship with a 30-year-old teacher is of legal age of consent, he is also still a school pupil and there are power dynamics at play.
Parents of Bishops pupils have expressed shock over allegations that ex-sports coach Fiona Viotti had a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old matric pupil.
The South African Press Code emphasises that the media shall "take care to report news truthfully, accurately and fairly". George Claassen asks if it was unfair to name Mallett at all in a case of alleged misconduct that clearly has no relevance to him?
