New Cybercrime Bill   

……Every business must have a battle plan

In the light of the fact that the Cybercrimes Bill, now passed by Parliament, places obligations on financial institutions and service providers to report incidents to SAPS, it would seem imperative that preparedness by business for a cybercrime incident must include a well-planned response plan.

Sixth Parliament will debate Expropriation Bill…

Expropriation Bill top subject for new parliament….

sent to clients early Jan 2019….

In December 2018, a new draft of the Expropriation Bill was published by government gazette with a 60-day period for comment.   This means the final document will no doubt become the kingpin of debate in the first session of the new Parliament. It will also form the basis of much comment by President Cyril Ramaphosa in his second State of the Nation Address.

Not many were expecting a final legislation proposal for comment so soon after the ConCourt constitutional decision on the subject.  Land restitution, as distinct from land reform, is the kind of hot-potato subject that many say should never be debated just before an election.  With the whole issued being overlaid with a tinge of fear, it is also an ideal subject for fake news, they say.

Gigaba pushes for control of border posts

Treasury, Home Affairs at odds on customs issues

Parliament will be debating in the new session in August the Border Management Authority Bill.   What the Bill proposes is a single state entity known as the Border Management Authority (BMA) to oversee all aspects of the movement in the import/export of goods and to control movement of all persons either leaving or entering the country.

The idea is that all border law enforcement functions along South Africa’s fragmented 5,000 kilometres of border will be the responsibility of the BMA.   Read More……    Border Management Bill July 2018 PDF

2019 to see final debate on land expropriation

Land expropriation no compensation now proposed.. 

sent to clients 8 July 2018….

Parliament is about to debate one of the most loaded issues since its formation under the new democratic dispensation in 1994; that of acquiring without compensation land as part of the current land reform programme.   

Whether President Ramaphosa wanted such a debate before or after elections is not the point anymore. The moment has arrived and Parliament is to consider an EFF motion to consider the proposal. This will maybe force the ANC’s hand in joining the bandwagon and to endorse the “no compensation” approach under defined circumstances.

However, many feel that such a labourious route need not be undertaken to achieve the same end.
