Attacks on Tim Cohen &Peter Bruce

The Committee of the Cape Town Press Club condemns Thursday's attacks on Peter Bruce and Tim Cohen in the strongest possible terms. The thuggish behaviour they were exposed to simply cannot be tolerated.

We urge Messrs Bruce and Cohen to not let this act of intimidation distract them from their work. As senior and respected members of the fourth estate, they have a right and a duty to speak truth to power.

The Cape Town Press Club and other like-minded organisations will not stand idly by while our profession is sacrificed on the altar of political expediency.

Journalism is not a crime. State Capture is.
