A GDF release yesterday said that apart from the Chief of Staff, the Second in Command, and the Officer responsible for Civil Affairs, the Public Relations and Education Department is responsible for the passage of information to media houses and their representatives.
"To solicit views, interviews or otherwise entertain statements from serving members of the GDF is not consistent with our media policy or with established protocols that have guided our relationships in the past," the release noted.
It further stated that "a soldier attired in uniform symbolises either his or her preparedness for a military duty or his representation of the organisation in an official capacity".
Consequently, should any serving member or members of the GDF approach any media house or its representatives on any matter, private or public, confirmation should be sought with the Public Relations and Education Department, the release added.
