Implementation i



The Government of Montenegro will adopt a text of the new Law on Free Access to Information in order to increase possibilities for detection of corruption cases and other breaches of laws by entities subject to the Law on Free Access to Information. This will provide for: an effective oversight of implementation of regulations on free access to information by a single second-instance body, which will be composed of non-partisan professionals; regular quarterly reporting on application of the Law by officers tasked with addressing the requests for free access to information to a single second-instance body; creation of a list of documents that must be proactively published by each institution subject to the Law; and promotion of a rule that a free access to information is obligatory, while restrictions make rare and justifiable exceptions.
