Do we know about our right to know?

Without enough information, the right information, it’s hard for us to make decisions on just about anything.

But as a society in a democracy, do we have the right to access information, especially from our public bodies? In conjunction with the International Day for Universal Access to Information on 28 September), BFM speaks to Wathshlah Naidu, executive director of the Centre for Independent Journalism, on the importance of access to information and why that matters in press freedom in Malaysia.

Produced and presented by: Lim Sue Ann
