The Freedom of Information Law

According to the Freedom of Information Law-1998, every citizen and resident is entitled to receive information from a public authority, in accordance with the limitations determined therein. The limitations are intended to balance between the freedom of information and various rights and interests such as State security, safeguarding of privacy, professional and commercial secrets etc.

 

The law designates who is entitled to receive information, which sort of information is forbidden to transfer or is subject to discretion before being transferred, the measure of discretion of a public authority when transferring information, and regulations and guidelines relating to the procedures of submitting a request and the consideration of such requests.
