NGO Urges Zuma Not to Sign Info Bill

SANEF urges President Zuma not to sign the Protection of State Information Bill in its current form

The South African National Editors' Forum (SANEF) has urged President Jacob Zuma not to sign the Protection of State Information Bill (Secrecy Bill) into law in its current form.
 
In a press statement, SANEF states that it is concerned with the “…provisions that allow for broad classification of information, including that which has nothing to do with security of the state,” as well as delegating authority to ambiguous state officials to classify information.
 
The organisation believes that the Bill criminalises the ownership and dissemination of classified state information, even if such information is in the public interest.
