3000 € for asking about corruption

Madrid, 11 January 2013 – Access Info, today launched a campaign to raise €3000 for costs it has to pay to the Spanish government after the Supreme Court ruled that the pro-transparency NGO does not have the right to ask what the Spanish government is doing to fight corruption.

Access Info has lost a last appeal against the costs imposed after a five-year legal battle to obtain a response to an information request asking what Spain is doing to implement the UN Convention against Corruption.

OKFNs vision states that openness improves governance through increased transparency and engagement and this this judgement is against this principle.
