After months of deliberations, Parliament's intelligence committee has finally agreed to publish the CVs of those who have applied to be the next Inspector General of Intelligence.
Murray Hunter, of the Right2Know Campaign, says the position of Inspector General has been vacant for almost two years.
This is a result of a slow delayed process by Parliament which is responsible for appointing a suitable candidate.
We took a big step forward yesterday which is the deployment that has been under a certain degree of secrecy has taken a step towards transparency because the CV's will be published like we saw with the Public Protector's process.— Murray Hunter, Spokesperson Right2Know Campaign
The public should be able to see who are the candidates, what are their credentials, skills and experience and who is this person who wants to be the next Inspector General.— Murray Hunter, Spokesperson Right2Know Campaign
According to Hunter, Inspector General of Intelligence is the watchdog that acts sort of the public protector specifically for state security structures.
