If you've gotten hold of the information then you must have prove that this information in your possession is lawful.

Advocate Collen Weapond, Office of the Information Regulator

To make matters worse, the conversation between the agent and King Zwelithini was posted online. Weapond says that sharing of personal, confidential and sensitive information is illegal.

This is going to be in PR text books for years to come.
