>right to info law now in final stage

>THE military-backed caretaker government of Bangladesh is working to pass a law to ensure people’s right to information, head of the interim government Fakhruddin Ahmed said Friday.
The chief adviser, a former governor of the country’s central bank, said the government is sincere in ensuring free flow of information in the country and has already taken an initiative to formulate a right to information act, now at the final stage.
He said this while inaugurating the month-long “Amar Ekushey Book Fair 2008” and the month-long programme of Bangla Academy on its premises in the capital Friday.
On the right to information, the CA said any citizen has the right to get information from any government and private organisation. Directives have already been given to various government, semi-government and autonomous organisations for the formulation of a citizen’s charter.

Transparency and accountability of the government institutions can be ensured to the people through this charter, he said, expressing hope that the right to information act would have an epoch making influence in building a well disciplined, creative and knowledge based society, free from corruption and terrorism.
