On 5th August 2016, the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) hosted a delegation of Sri Lankan parliamentarians.
The background to this visit is that the Sri Lankan ‘Constitutional Assembly’ is poised to start negotiating a (new) Constitution, which will include a modern bill of rights; seek a political solution (power sharing/devolution) to address the so-called National (Tamil) Issue and provide for a new electoral system (as a chapter in the new Constitution).
The South African Human Rights Commission has concluded its investigation into a complaint lodged against the South African Broadcasting Authority by Die Afrikanerbond lodged on 29th June 2016.
The complaint was lodged by Mr. Jan Bosman, Chief Secretary (Die Afrikanerbond) on 29 June 2016, detailed allegations of an unfair editorial policy at the SABC, as well as political interference in the management of the SABC.
