Coming up on 3rd degree:
Episode title: In The Hot Seat
Broadcast date: Tuesday, 31 January 2012.
Finally, the Muslim Judicial Council buckle under pressure and agree to face 3rd Degree’s Debora Patta, in a no-holds-barred interview.
After the Halaal meat scandal erupted in Cape Town late last year, 3rd Degree attempted for weeks to question the body that controls Halaal certification in the Western Cape.
The show wanted to find out from the MJC how the process works, what checks and balances are in place, and most importantly, what happens to the money generated from certification?
With Muslims terrified that they might have unknowingly eaten pork, 3rd Degree wanted to find out how this could have happened on their watch.
But the MJC refused point blank to speak to the show.
Now, after what some commentators have termed a total PR disaster, executive member of the MJC Moulana Abdul Fataagh Carr steps into the hot seat.
3rd Degree is on e.tv on Tuesdays at 21h30.
