ANC-COSATU joint statement on Info Bill
15 December 2011
A delegation of African National Congress members of Parliament, led by Chief Whip, Mathole Motshekga, held a meeting with the national office bearers of the Congress of South Africa Trade Unions today, 15 December 2011, at COSATU House to discuss the Protection of State Information Bill.
COSATU presented a document, which while confirming its support for legislation to protect national security, and welcoming the improvements made to the original bill, set out its concerns with aspects of the current version of the bill.
There was agreement that these concerns must still be discussed at both the NCOP and Alliance levels.
It was agreed to establish teams from the two structures in order to continue detailed discussions and seek common ground.
