Leader of the Khoisan Defiance Campaign, Sammy Claasen, says although SA Rugby has cleared Springbok lock Eben Etzebeth of any wrongdoing following an internal investigation into an incident in Langebaan last year, he still has to go to the Equality Court.
Etzebeth was accused of physical and racial abuse outside a
pub in the Western Cape town, just before the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
SA Rugby has issued a brief statement saying that an independent investigation was conducted and that the case from their perspective is now closed.
Etzebeth admitted to being there, but denied that he was guilty of any sort of abuse.
The Human Rights Commission however has still not completed its investigation into the matter.
Claasen says reports that he has been cleared by SA Rugby should not mislead the public into thinking that he has no case to answer."https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/s526x296/117051893_3406885326030494_511200197671155234_n.jpg?_nc_cat=101&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=R62z_oqRbtIAX9PYLm8&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&_nc_tp=7&oh=7975f31102dfe4f0538e090f98b4e68b&oe=5F4F1D16","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/117042012_3406885492697144_3817609959058674216_n.jpg?_nc_cat=103&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=p1WW7ktzNCMAX-lRcp3&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&oh=5d068c130d2a79685511c4823f193429&oe=5F4BD771"
