We need a True FOIA

First Published: 2016-09-17

We are united in urging the following recommendations critical to a true Freedom of Information Act.

Give Power To The People

Creation of an Independent Information Commission, without ties to government, to enforce the Freedom of Information Act.

A clear understanding of why access to information may be denied, defining ‘National Security’ and ‘Public Interest’ exceptions.

Keep Government Honest

A Whistleblower’s Act to protect Government workers who ‘do the right thing’ by sharing information about dishonest behaviour in Government.

The Minister of Information should not have the discretion to withhold information

Tell your MP that you want a strong and fair Freedom of Information Act. Sign the petition at www.campaign242.org/foia_bahamas
