Armenian Court Rules Against Fees for Personal Information

3 March 2016

Armenia’s Constitutional Court has ruled that the government can’t charge persons who request their personal information.

The Freedom of Information Center brought the case against the State Cadastre Committee, according to a posting.

The Constitutional Court annulled Article 71 and Article 32 (2) of the Law on State Registration of Rights of Property to the extent that they don’t define a differentiated approach when the information relates to a person requesting information about himself or herself.

Selling the information would violate the principles in the FOI law, the court said.

The government was given until Nov. 1, 2016, to conform with the decision.
