FOIA Proposal Not Acted on by Spanish Ministers

27 August 2010

An expected meeting of the Spanish Council of Ministers Aug. 20 on a yet-undisclosed proposal for a freedom of information law was not held, prompting calls for more transparency.

Access Info wrote a letter to the Spanish government Aug. 25 asking for information about the draft “Law on Transparency and Citizen Access to Public Information.”

Since meeting agendas of the Council of Ministers are secret in Spain until after the meeting has taken place, Access Info asked when the council will consider the new law.

Access Info demanded a full consultation with members of the public and civil society groups on the draft law.

News about the impending proposal leaked earlier this month.
