The Western Cape South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) is expected to have an outcome by end of day today regarding the Equality Court case involving Eben Etzebeth who is accused of a racist assault in Langebaan.
Commissioner Chris Nissen confirmed that a legal opinion by a senior counsel on the matter would be presented to commissioners.
He declined to get into detail and said they were not the actual complainant but were merely acting on the complainants behalf.
He added that South Africans would know the outcome by Monday.
The Springbok rugby player is accused of allegedly using a racial insult when leaving a pub in Langebaan on the West Coast, in the early hours of August 25 with a group of friends.
The incident allegedly also involved two men being pistol-whipped.
The SAHRC previously submitted papers for a hate speech case against Eben Etzebeth in the Equality Court, sitting in Hopefield on the West Coast on behalf of the so called Langebaan Four.
According to News24 the four were looking for compensation of more than R1m and wanted him to apologise, undergo anger management and racial sensitivity training, as well as community service.
The Springbok lock participated in the Rugby World Cup in Japan, while the furore played out back home.
