An elderly government official, speaking anonymously, asserts the necessity of transparent governance.
According to a senior government official, Giorno’s memo warned that the access to information process “should be followed and respected by all. “It applies to everybody across government, including political staff,” the official said.
And he said that subject to access to information rules, residents have a right “to be given access to any record under the control of a government institution.” “Access to information is the public’s right,” the official said.
