The Gauteng High Court in Pretoria requested that matric results should be distributed on all stages, on Tuesday, 18 January. This comes after the Department of Basic Education (DBE) declared that outcomes would not be openly accessible this year.
MATRIC RESULTS TO BE PUBLISHED
Last week, the schooling division said the distribution of matric results would be an infringement of the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) and hence the custom would reach a conclusion in 2022.
This provoked a critical prohibit by Afriforum and two different gatherings, while the South African National Editors Forum (SANEF) griped that the non-distribution of the 2021 matric results would undermine print distributions, which are as of now in a dubious monetary circumstance.
The dire prohibit was conceded, unaltered, by the Pretoria High Court on Tuesday.
The matric results are relied upon to be delivered on Thursday, 20 January - and media stages ought to be free to distribute on the grounds that the training division recently showed that it would not go against the forbid.
"It is in the public interest that this data is shared on open stages and that is one reason why we brought this application.
"We are pleased that the court concurred with us in this contention," said Natasha Venter, Manager of Education Rights at AfriForum.
