NPOs Under the Cosh – Again

Here we go again. Every time that this country’s nonprofit part of civil society imagines that its independence is secured and respected by politics, out they come to have another crack at subverting that independence.
 
Our Constitution, often mistakenly called ‘the most liberal in the world’, guarantees freedom of association and therefore also of disassociation. Try telling that to nonprofit organisations (NPOs).
 

Iran Proposes Bill that Limits NGO Activity

The Iranian parliament has been urged to scrap draft legislation that would place restrictions on the independence of NGOs.
 
According to Amnesty International, the law would require that all NGOs operating in the country register with ‘a new and unaccountable body’ that has links with the Intelligence Ministry and the Basij volunteer paramilitary force.
