The ACMA is seriously considering  investigation into comments by Fiveaa’s Bob Francis that a magistrate’s face should be “smashed in”.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), which received a complaint against Francis as a result of the October 26 program, today said it was yet to receive a copy of the court’s judgment.

“But it’s certainly a matter that we’re aware of and we have an interest in,” ACMA spokesman Donald Robertson said.

He said ACMA would read the judgment before deciding whether to conduct its own investigation to determine if 5AA had breached licensing conditions by allowing Francis’ comments to be aired.
