Khulumani Endorses the Call Made by South African Civil Society to the Open Government Partnership Steering Committee Meeting in Brazil

South African Government Attends Open Government Partnership Steering Committee Meeting in Brazil. Khulumani joins South African Civil Society in calling on the Open Government Partnership Steering Committee currently meeting in Brazil to:

* Ensure that the South African government reports to the OGP Steering Committee on developments regarding its commitments to re-draft the Protection of State Information legislation to bring it in line with the principles embodied in the Open Government Partnership Declaration (to which it is a founding signatory); and to

* Ensure that the South African government engages with civil society in order to develop a monitoring system for its OGP commitments.

 These principles are of particular concern to Khulumani Support Group which had on Friday, April 20, 2012 to raise alarms about the failures of the TRC Unit staff in the Department of Justice to honour the principles of openness, transparency and integrity in their relationship with the civil society nominees from the South African Coalition for Transitional Justice, including Khulumani Support Group, to the Technical Task Team tasked with preparing a minute for Cabinet on fulfilling reparations expectations for survivors and victims of gross human rights violations in South Africa.
