Publication of shortlist for Interviewees for the position of Information Regulator
These are Advocate Pansy Tlakula, Mr Johannes Weapond, Mr David Taylor, Adv Lebogang Stroom, Mr Lindelo Snail, Mr Siyakhula Simelane, Ms Thav Reddy, Mr Francois Cronje, Ms Shamila Singh and Ms Tana Pistorius.
It is understood that candidates will be interviewed in the near future but it is not clear when the appointments for the positions to be filled and the Information Regulator will be announced. This is a step in the right direction and we can only hope that in the near future appropriate protections against the abuses of privacy that are suffered by South African citizens can begin to be addressed.
