DLF Warns Against Secrecy Bill

The DLF warns that the recent concessions made by the ANC on the Protection of Information Bill are not good enough

The Democratic Left Front (DLF) has warned that the recent concessions made by the African National Congress (ANC) on the Protection of Information Bill are not good enough.
 
In a press statement, media freedom activist, Jane Duncan, points out that, "While these concessions have improved the bill, it will still be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to ensure transparency of the most shadowy of all state structures, the security cluster."
 
Duncan states that the grounds for classification of documents, and the definition of national security, remain overly broad and will lead to documents that are of considerable public interest and importance being declared secret.
