National key points to be revealed

BY CHARL BOSCH - DECEMBER 3, 2014

A request to reveal 200 national key points across South Africa, which had been withheld in 2012, has been declared “unlawful and unconstitutional” by the South Gauteng High Court on Wednesday.

In passing the ruling, attended by members of the Right to Know Campaign (R2K) and South African History Archive (SAHA), Judge Roland Sutherland stated that the police had 30 days in which to reveal the names and that they should also pay the respective groups legal documents.

“The Constitution will always look at the balance between secrecy and access to information and almost always rules in the favour of access to information. Many of the National Key Points are actually publicly known,” R2K’s Murray Hunter told Eyewitness News.

No word has yet been reported by the Ministry of Police.
