Chile’s Supreme Court Orders Disclosure of Official E-mails

8 November 2013

The Chilean Supreme Court of Justice has ordered the Ministry of Transport to release e-mails from public officials related to the modification of the public urban transport system in Santiago.

The Supreme Court decided Nov. 6 that the disclosure of the e-mails about the Transantiago contracts doesn´t violate the privacy of the officials and that electronic communications about contract grants in administrative proceedings are not secret. (See an article about the ruling in Spanish in The Clinic.)

The decision reversed a decision of the Court of Appeals.
