Police to appeal National Key Points judgment
Earlier this month a judge ruled that the police make the list available by early January.
JOHANNESBURG - The Police Ministry has filed legal papers in the High Court for leave to appeal a judgment ordering the South African Police Service (SAPS) to reveal the names of 200 National Key Points.
Sutherland initially ruled that the police make this list available by early January.
The Right to Know Campaign has promised to publish the names of all 200 National Key Points as soon as they receive the list from the police, but that has now been stalled.
Police Ministry spokesperson Musa Zondi says papers applying for leave to appeal were filed last week.
"We have a belief that a different court will come to a different opinion or judgment."
Sutherland stated in his judgment that nowhere in the act does it indicate that the names should not be disclosed.
But the police have argued that there are 'dark forces' that are out to destabilise the peace-loving country.
