The Office of the Information and Data Protection Commissioner held online information and awareness-raising meetings with RTI Coordinators of independent institutions, ministries and local self-government bodies, under the theme: “The right to information in the time of Covid-19 pandemic”.

The Office of the Commissioner acknowledges the joint efforts made for compliance with the requirements of the right to information legislation. Public Authorities should, with reference to this situation, give more attention to updating their Transparency Programmes and “Registers of Requests and Responds”, owing to their importance as instruments ensuring transparency and accountability of the public administration.

In this respect, the Commissioner’s Office has also developed an electronic poster, inviting Public Authorities to publish it on their official websites.
