Former presidential spokesperson Mac Maharaj intends to appeal a High Court ruling which grants the Mail & Guardian (M&G) permission to publish his testimony in a secret inquiry.
The judgment has overruled the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) decision to censor the Mail & Guardian's report in 2011 including transcripts by Maharaj.
The Pretoria High Court ruled that testimony given by Maharaj, to the disbanded investigations unit Scorpions, could not be regraded as confidential as they had been in the public domain.
The M&G was forced to black out sections of a report back in 2011 after receiving threats of a criminal prosecution from Maharaj's legal team.
M&G's investigative journalism centre, amaBhungane have celebrated the victory, but believe the legal battle may not be entirely over.
Unfortunately, Mr Maharaj has indicated to our lawyers that he intends to appeal. So we may be forced to fight about this for a while longer.— Sam Sole, joint managing partner at amaBhungane
AmaBhungane's Sam Sole says that they want to publish the contents of the transcripts to expose the political capture of the NPA.
