The High Court in Johannesburg will hear an application for a list of South Africa’s National Key Points to be made public.
The Right2Know Campaign (R2K) and the SA History Archive (SAHA) want the list to be made public in terms of the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA).
R2K spokesperson, Murray Hunter, says in 2012, a request was made to the South African Police Service for the list of key points, but it was refused.
Civic organisations had complained that the secrecy surrounding National Key Points had been ‘used to undermine’ the right to know and to protest in public spaces.
