In December, the Western Cape High Court ruled that Motsoeneng must be removed from the position of SABC group executive of corporate affairs.
The court found the former chief operations officer’s appointment was unlawful and unconstitutional and that he should face a fresh disciplinary hearing.
This week, the same court heard an application by the SABC to appeal the ruling setting aside Motsoeneng's appointment in his new position as group executive of corporate affairs.
In a statement on Friday, Parliament's communications committee says it will ask to be briefed in detail by Communications Minister Faith Muthambi about the reasons behind the appeal.
It further states it had hoped the expensive and protracted legal battle had been concluded.
The court is expected to rule on the application next week.
