The South African National Editors Forum (Sanef) says it is confident about the manner in which it presented its case before the Equality Court  against the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

 Sanef and five senior journalists approached the Equality Court, sitting in the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria, to interdict the EFF from intimidating, harassing and assaulting journalists. The five journalists are News24 editor Adriaan Basson, Daily Maverick journalist Pauli van Wyk, Tiso Blackstar associate editor Ranjeni Munusamy, Eyewitness News senior journalist Barry Bateman and Vrye Weekblad co-editor Max du Preez.

The court spent two days hearings arguments from both parties, with the EFF arguing that the court should not "waste its time".
