Supporting the Tshwane Principles, the Committee on Culture,
Science, Education and Media welcomes the report by the Committee
on Legal Affairs and Human Rights. However, the committee wishes
to propose a few amendments to the draft resolution. Those amendments
aim to strengthen the protection of human rights and clarify the
balance of freedom of information with the protection of national
security as well as other human rights in accordance with the jurisprudence
of the European Court of Human Rights.
