FOI Amendments in Poland Illegally Passed, Court Says

23 April 2012

Poland’s Constitutional Tribunal April 18 has annulled amendments to the freedom of information law passed in 2011.

The court ruled that the rules of the legislation process under which the changes were approved violated the Polish Constitution.

Polish transparency activists had opposed the changes which were largely aimed at limited access to materials related to the commercialization and privatization of property. (See previous reports.)
