More Time Required to Fix Secrecy Bill

The R2K criticises the insufficient time given to Parliament to fix the Secrecy Bill

The Right2Know Campaign (R2K) says that Parliament's plans to review the Protection of State Information Bill (Secrecy Bill) in two days makes a mockery of its duty to correct the contentious draft law.
 
The lobby group says that President Jacob Zuma had rightly referred the official Secrecy Bill back to the National Assembly on advice that it is unconstitutional, but that the problems are too severe to be fixed by the deadline.
 
Meanwhile, R2K spokesperson, Murray Hunter, is of the view that, "All MPs now have an important opportunity to fix the problems with the Secrecy Bill's constitutionality."
