Regulations for the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture,
Corruption and Fraud in the Public Sector including Organs of State
Media Monitoring Africa is a non-profit organisation which promotes ethical and fair journalism that supports democracy and human rights. MMA seeks to protect the constitutional right to freedom of expression and the media and
advocates for the free flow of information to the public on matters of public interest.
MMA is aware that the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture, Corruption and Fraud in the Public Sector Including Organs of State (“the State Capture Commission”) is due to begin imminently. MMA is deeply concerned by certain clauses in the Regulations for the State Capture Commission published in Government Gazette 41436 of 9 February 2018 (“the Regulations”), which appear to limit media freedom, the right to freedom of expression and the right to access information.
