Nelson Mandela Centre concerned about Information Bill

Lusanda Bill
22 November 2011

The Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory is concerned about the Protection of State Information Bill, to be passed by the National Assembly today.

The Centre has, together with the Wits Law School, hosted extensive talks about the legislation.

It found that the Bill does not meet the required standards of the constitution or freedom of information and expression.

The Centre will continue fighting for a balanced law, which it regards as crucial for the country’s constitutional democracy.
