DHA Adopts Refugee Amendment Bill

The portfolio committee on Home Affairs unanimously adopts the Refugee Amendment Bill 2015

The portfolio committee on Home Affairs has unanimously adopted the Refugee Amendment Bill 2015, which will open hearings of the Refugee Appeals Board to the media and public.

The committee also says it would recommend that the bill be adopted and passed by the National Assembly.

The amendment bill became necessary after the media challenged existing legislation and the Constitutional Court declared certain sections of the Refugees Act‚ 1998‚ inconsistent with the Constitution as it precluded members of the public and the media from attending proceedings of the Refugee Appeal Board.
