The St Helena Media Standards Commission has today published a Draft Media Code in a St Helena Government Extraordinary Gazette.
The Commission, consisting of Chief Magistrate John MacRitchie (President), Jennifer Corker, Rodney Buckley and George Stevens, exercises its functions independently from the legislative and executive branches of Government.
The Commission invites all members of the public or any organisation to comment on the Draft Media Code, which can also be viewed at: EX GAZ No 58 2013 Media Code
Any comments on the Draft Media Code should be made direct to the Media Standards Commission, by writing to the Clerk to the Commission, The Courthouse, Jamestown (or by email to: email@example.com), by Friday 27 December 2013.
All comments will be considered by the Commission before a final Media Code is published. This Code will then apply to all media services in or from St Helena, under the Media Standards Ordinance.
