Call to Declare Signal Jamming in Parly Unlawful

Media houses want the Western Cape High Court to declare as unlawful the use a signal jamming device during the SONA

Media houses want the Western Cape High Court to declare it was unlawful to use a signal jamming device during the State of the Nation Address (SONA) in February.

Steven Budlender, for the applicants, argues that even though the event was in the past, ‘the problem and unlawfulness’ of the device went beyond its mistaken use during the SONA.

He says the use of the device by security services was unlawful because it was irrational, there was no legal authority to do so, it was in contrary to Parliamentary Power and Privileges Act, and it violated the right to an open Parliament.
