* THE subpoena hearing of eNews journalists Mpho Lakaje and Ben Said was postponed in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court by agreement so an alternative process could be used to resolve the channel's standoff with the police.The television channel got into hot water with the police after broadcasting an interview with two self-confessed criminals, one of whom threatened to rob tourists during the 2010 Soccer World Cup.Following the interview, Lakaje and Said were subpoenaed, in terms of section 205 of the Criminal Procedure Act, to disclose the identities of the criminals and deliver the unedited footage of the interviews.
