‘no one should stream the video to avoid criminal charges’
The under pressure minister, however stated that the video was stolen when his phone got hacked 18 months ago.
The video has been a topic of discussion since it was leaked on Sunday.
The legal expert says people who share the sex video could get in trouble with the law if it was illegally obtained.
Gigaba says he reported the matter to authorities after it was used in a blackmail and extortion attempt by unknown culprits, which he turned down.
