The Independent Communication Authority of SA (Icasa) must reconsider Radio Pretoria’s application for a broadcasting licence, the Supreme Court of Appeal ruled on Friday.
The station is a community radio station catering for "boere-Afrikaners".
The station appealed against a Pretoria High Court judgment which dismissed its review application against Icasa. Icasa had refused Radio Pretoria a four-year community broadcasting and signal distribution licence.
The Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein upheld the station’s appeal with costs, and referred the matter back to Icasa to reconsider.
