AL JAMA-AH LEADER KEY WITNESS FOR RADIO 786 JEWISH BOARD OF DEPUTIES HATE SPEECH CHARGE

Party Leader Ganief Hendricks took a week off  from campaigning for the 2014 elections to sit with the station’s  senior council to refute  the hate speech allegation by the Jewish Board of Deputies.  Hours before he was expected to be called as the station’s first witness the Board withdrew the complaint. Ganief hit the headlines when he called for the release of professor Karabus when he was detained in the Emirates.

The complaint was lodged 16 years ago when he was one of the  leaders of the station and the licence holder the Islamic Unity Convention representing the Majlisush Shura Al Islami.
