Greece beach racial slur case to be heard next week
Adam Catzavelos, the man who caused an uproar in 2018 after a video emerged of him using the K-word while on holiday in Greece, is expected to appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court next week, according to News24.
NPA spokesperson Phindi Louw said the man would appear on 28 May.
Catzavelos was on holiday in Greece last year when he recorded a video of himself on a beach, making racist comments. 'Not one kaffir in sight, fucking heaven on earth ... You cannot beat this!' he said in the video.
Following his comments, the EFF laid a charge of crimen injuria against Catzavelos, with the South African Human Rights Commission also saying they would investigate the matter.
News24 previously reported that, since the publishing of the video, the Catzavelos family business had taken a big knock, with many people ending their business relationship with St George's Fine Foods.
Catzavelos was also fired from the family business.
