JOHANNESBURG - The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) said it would abide by Thursday's court ruling against it and in favour of journalist Karima Brown.
"The EFF welcomes the court judgment on the Karima Brown matter and will comply," the one line statement said in response to the High Court in Johannesburg ruling it had breached the electoral code.
The EFF was ordered to pay costs.
Brown, who hosts a political talk show on broadcaster eNCA, hauled the party and its leader Julius Malema to court after receiving death and rape threats, allegedly from EFF supporters, following the publication of her number on Twitter by Malema.
It all began when Malema took to Twitter to accuse her of sending "moles" to a campaign meeting the EFF was holding with "elders" in Erkuhuleni's Ward 6.
