Johannesburg - AfriForum deputy chief executive could soon be charged and convicted for contempt of court over his display of the apartheid flag if the Nelson Mandela Foundation has its way.
Last week, the Equality Court declared it illegal to publicly display the old apartheid flag, following the application by the foundation and the SA Human Rights Commission.
AfriForum has been the biggest defender of the flag and unsuccessfully opposed the application to have its public display outlawed.
Ernst Roets has come under fire after he took to Twitter and posted the flag soon after the ruling.
In a statement, the foundation said Roets’ actions were contemptuous and disrespectful.
