Privacy watchdog to probe Oz gov's right to release personal info 'to correct the record'


It's worse than the 'privacy expert' thinks...

Actually reading section 202 of the SS Act, there's a nice little note right at the bottom: "In addition to the requirements of this section, information disclosed under this section must be dealt with in accordance with the Australian Privacy Principles." The APPs are part of the Privacy Act. So in this case, it looks like the SS Act is subordinate to the Privacy Act (not the other way around as suggested by the quoted privacy expert).

2 years jail, strict liability offence.
