Mac vs M&G, Sunday Times

- 21 November 2011

In a recent article on Biz-Community.Com, Dario Milo, a partner at Webber Wentzel was quoted when he commented on the saga between the M&G and presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj, who has brought criminal charges against the newspaper.

Milo mentioned that the criminal prohibition of a story in a publication can have a “powerful chilling effect” and he stressed the importance of a public interest defence in a legislation like the NPA Act and ,of course, the Protection of State Information Bill.
