Cayman Commissioner Reports Agency Resistance

20 September 2012

Cayman Islands Information Commissioner Jennifer Dilbert has criticized an unnamed government agency for failing to identify records responsive to a request, according to a recent quarterly report.  

The report said the commissioner will not hesitate to enforce penalties in the law.  

Also noted in the report is that a Legislative Assembly subcommittee’s review of the FOI law is ready for review by the full committee, according to a Cayman Compass article.

Dilbert discussed other issues related to the law in an interview with the Cayman News Service. The article said, “While some public authorities have embraced the freedom of information law and are proactively publishing more and more information, others seem to be doing everything they can to prevent information from coming, says the information commissioner.”
