IBA Act protest rally approved under “excessive, exaggerated conditions”

Published

Members of the Freedom of Expression Platform are reportedly furious against 15 strict conditions that have been imposed by the Police with regards to a car parade scheduled for December 10 in protest to the recent amendments to the IBA Act.

While the principle of the car rally has been accepted, Police are said to have forced organisers to undertake that, for example, they will not display any banner or flag, use horns or loudspeakers, slow down, or get out of their vehicles.

Academic Rajen Narsinghen told Defi Media that Police want to “mitigate the meeting of the citizens”, by making it seem like “a funeral procession.”

This is third protest being organised against the controversial media law.

Platform spokesperson Dev Sunnasy has demanded a meeting to review the “excessive and exaggerated conditions.”
