Afriforum says Momberg's sentence shows double standards on racism

Alfred John Impicciatore will be the final

Momberg was found guilty of four counts of crimen injuria in November a year ago after she was seen shouting racial slurs at a black police officer in 2016 who was trying to assist her after she was involved in an alleged smash-and-grab incident.

Rose, according to court records, had his murder charge dismissed but entered pleas of guilty to the other three counts, for which LaFortune imposed a 30-year sentence. That year was suspended for a period of three years on condition that she did not commit the offence again.

Magistrate Pravina Rugoonandan said the court made several considerations in its ruling.

She said she viewed Momberg's actions as intentional as the police officer was merely doing his job when she verbally abused him.

Roets also blamed EFF leader Julius Malema for his remarks against Nelson Mandela Mayor Athol Trollip.

Momberg went on a racist rant shortly after being a victim of a smash-and-grab in Johannesburg in 2016.

State prosecutor Yusuf Baba argued against the bail application prior to an appeal procedure because the court had to apply it's mind on whether such appeal had any prospects of success.

Baba said Momberg deserved a direct imprisonment sentence as he had hurled racial slurs a couple of times. "To ask for direct imprisonment takes a lot from any person and this case warranted direct imprisonment".

A racist rehab? That's a first.

But at a hearing in May 2017 he said he would delay sentence to consider Woodward's fate as one which hindered her career prospects would be "too severe".
