Macra takes 'spy machine' ban to Supreme Court

Monday 29 October 2012 | 12:59 CET | News
The Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (Macra) will go the the Supreme Court to challenge a High Court ruling stopping Macra from implementing the Consolidated ICT Regulatory Management Systems (CIRMS), locally known as the 'spy machine'. Director General Charles Nsaliwa told The Sunday Times that Macra remains resolved to deploy CIRMS, saying it is purely aimed at telecoms service quality control. He said the notice of appeal has already been filed at the Supreme Court. The court is yet to set dates for the start of hearing of the case.
