Call for Secrecy Bill to be Scrapped

The Nelson Mandela Centre for Memory calls for the Protection of State Information Bill to be withdrawn and redrafted

The Nelson Mandela Centre for Memory has called for the Protection of State Information Bill to be withdrawn and redrafted.

Verne Harris, the director of the centre's archive, says the Bill remains unconstitutional despite amendments made at the last minute before it was passed by Parliament in April.

He says one of its fundamental flaws is that it sought to set up a regime of dealing with state information that ran parallel to that envisaged in the Constitution and the progressive Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA).
