Parliament's National Council of Provinces on Thursday passed the controversial Protection of State Information Bill.
 
34 members voted in favour of the Bill and 16 voted against.  The Ministry of State Security welcomed the developments of the Bill.
 
Meanwhile the Right2Know Campaign has threatened to take the matter to court if the bill is passed in its current form.
 
Critics of the bill say it will allow corruption to flourish as whistleblowers could be jailed for up to 15 years.
