‘Don’t be afraid to give information’

The Information Commission has appealed to all department heads not to be afraid of providing information.

According to the Right to Information Act legal framework, all information that has been requested should be provided, the Commission said.

The Commission has so far received many complaints that although information has been requested from certain departments, this information is not provided.

Hence, the Commission has now been forced to order these officials to release the information requested for.

The Commission added that all documents containing information of these departments, belong to the public.
However, the Commission will take measures to notify the department heads regarding the public’s right to information.
