The former chief justice has been ordered to apologise after it was found he 'involved himself in political controversy' and 'was involved in extrajudicial activities'.

As a result, the appeals committee ruled that Mogoeng must issue an “unconditional apology for becoming involved in political controversy through his utterances at the online seminar (webinar) hosted by the Jerusalem Post on June 23 2020".“A copy of the apology must be released by Mogoeng to the office of the chief justice and the media within 10 days of this decision,” the appeals committee said.

The offence stems for a webinar in June 2020, when themoderator, editor-in-chief of the newspaper, Yakoov Katz, asked Mogoeng about his love for the Jewish people, for Israel, for the state of Israel and his thoughts on the tense diplomatic relations between SA and Israel.
