Submission to the Portfolio Committee on Justice and Correctional Services regarding the Prevention and Combating of Hate Crimes and Hate Speech Bill of 2018 [B9-2018]

1 October 2021 – This submission by the Institute of Race Relations to the Portfolio Committee on Justice and Correctional Services argues that the Prevention and Combating of Hate Crimes and Hate Speech Bill of 2018 is both unconstitutional and unnecessary and should be abandoned rather than pursued. The submission recommends that the government should instead focus on bringing the hate speech provisions in Pepuda into line with the Constitution.
