Right to information is a fundamental right

38 views

Freedom of information, a citizen’s right to information, is a democratic right.

As the saying goes, “The control of information is the tool of the dictatorship.”

Unfortunately, in Malaysia, despite calling itself a democratic nation, freedom of information as a legal provision is offered in only two states – Selangor and Penang.

Recently, the folks at Undi18 launched a campaign focusing on the right to information. Charlene See, programme lead of Undi18, joins BFM to discuss.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week.
