Submission from the Institute for Security Studies and the Open Society Justice Initiative to the Ad Hoc Committee considering the Protection of Information Bill [B62010]

"The aim then is to provide a statutory framework which provides direction to those in government who are charged with information protection; substantially reduce the amount of state information that is protected from disclosure; provide more effective protection to that information that truly requires safeguarding; and to align the information protection regime with the values, rights and freedoms enshrined in the Constitution."
