Constitutional court ordersto set date for the hearing of the Petition challenging the Anti Pornography Act 2014

Anti Pornography ActThe constitutional court has ordered that the Petition challenging the Anti Pornography Act is cause listed for hearing and a date is assigned for hearing of the petition. This followed the failure by the Attorney General on several attempts to attend the interparty conferencing with the latest scheduled for 25th of January, 2016 at the Constitutional court.

CEDOVIP together with other seven civil society organizations and activists petitioned the Constitutional court in May 2014 challenging the problematic, vague and subjective clauses in the Anti pornography law demanding that constitutional court to;

  • Permanently stay the operationalisation of the pornography Act 2014 until the vague clauses are clearly defined.

  • Issue permanent injunction restraining the Minister from issuing regulations to operationalise the Act.
