Former Chairperson of South African Airways Dudu Myeni was fined R200 000 or two years imprisonment by the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court.
She pleaded guilty to discloseling the identity of a protected witness during testimony before the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.
Myeni appeared before the Commission virtually in November 2020, and referred to the full identity of a witness instead of referring to them as Mr X.
The National Prosecuting Authority hopes the sentencing of the former SAA board Chairperson will send a strong message that whistle-blowers will be protected.
