Freedom of Information Act

This video was made by the Egyptian-American Rule-of-Law Association to raise the awareness about the importance of having a Freedom of Information Act in Egypt. The video is in Arabic, and it explains the Freedom of Information Legislation (FOIL) as follows. The FOIL, also known as access to information or right to information laws, empowers citizens by providing them with the right to access information in their government’s possession. FOIL gives citizens the right to be informed of government decisions and to engage in oversight of their elected representatives.

We all are looking forward that someday such law sees the light in Egypt.
