How long more for a Freedom of Information Act, asks anti-graft group
2 months ago
PETALING JAYA: The Centre to Combat Corruption & Cronyism (C4) has questioned when the government plans to enact a Freedom of Information Act (FOI).
“For how long will this Act be pushed to the back burner,” asked the anti-graft group in a statement.
It noted that law minister Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar had in June confirmed that discussions on the proposed law had been completed and that recommendations would be presented to Putrajaya “soon”.
The absence from the Parliament’s website archives of the Public Accounts Committee’s (PAC) reports for years 2019 to 2021 was an example of the state’s failure to facilitate the dissemination of information, the statement said.
